Political Theater From Frank
Frank, apparently bored with data entry, sends this gem in:
I just read the entirety of Mr. Robbins' speech to the Press Corps, made me proud to have shared a black box with the man. I've been thinking a little bit more about the statement "Susan Sarandan's statements have endangered our troops." What's interesting about this to me is that the only non-com who actually endangered our troops works for Fox News (I would have given a half dozen Quatari prostitutes to the platoon that fragged Geraldo).
Or at mail call:
everyone rush's around the dude with the mail
"Spitzer, you got a package"
"Oh Boy, my grandma's peanut brittle! I've shore missed this over here."
"Phillips, look like a letter from your girlfriend"
Phillips opens it "Wow she sent me nekked pics of herself, whooo-eeee!!"
"Santana, you got something from your cousin again" calls towards Santana, who is calling from inside of an outhouse.
"I'm kinda busy, Sarge, could you open it up for me"
"Sure thing son" opens up package "looks like a clipping from the NY Post"
"Swell, what's it say?"
"It's an article about Susan Sarandan"
"You mean the star of Bull Durham, Dead Man Walking and countless other classic films, whose every word I hang on?"
"Yep, that's the one"
"Oh boy, what's the new scoop on her?"
"Well, says here that she's not very happy about the military campaign in Iraq."
"Santana, you all right in there?"
sound of a gunshot from the latrine, men rush over, but it is too late, PFC Jeffrey Santana is yet another causalty reaped by Miss Sarandan's reckless machinations.
While we're at it, the BBC online is featuring a list of unanswered questions about coalition reporting and media coverage of various incidents in Iraq.
