Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for August 11, 2007
Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling The smell of stale Starbucks...the makeup powder sticking to your face...what they say is true... WAR DEBATE IS HELL Starring Nate the Neoconservative It's not even 0700 hours, and I sustain a massive hit! Sometimes in war debate, you ask: Mosque Blows Up. 17 Iraqis Found Dead Nate: WHY ME? I'm hemorrhaging debate points, so I do a radio show call-in. Nate: A mosque in Kirkuk has nothing to do with the surge strategy! Voice: Sir, you're not on the air yet! Nate; Yes, I AM! Then, as I'm off to a TV appearance -- another DISASTER for me and my arguments! ONE WAY Radio: ...five troops killed... Nate: AUGH! I'M HIT AGAIN! Man: You're going the wrong way! Nate: No, YOU are! "SIGH"! There's no more noble fight than the fight to prove that I am and always was right, but war debate is a dirty business. Nate: See, the LOONY LEFT doesn't CARE about the war on terror! TV I may have used the "The Fact Is" preface too often. The enemy can sense desperation. Nate: ...need coffee... Woman: Nate, the exit is this way... Nate: No, it's..."SIGH"! A young neocon blogger is in a FLAME WAR with a cut-and-runner. I jump in the fray! Nate: Pull up, kid! Now, steady...steady... It's too late. He admitted that Al Qaeda has grown since the war started. He'll never warblog again. We can all dream of a world in which there is no war debate, only war. But we live in THIS world, and we must soldier on. Man: Nate, you're in the wrong house again! Nate: "SIGH"! Does the debating never end?!
