Gang Activity: Herman Is Dragging His Feet On Changing Course In Iraq

December 6, 2006

Suggestion: read the original comic first to get a feel for the joke, then read the alternate version. You’re invited to leave your own take on the joke in our underpopulated comment section. Click here for past examples.

Bazooka Joe 31“Look at Herman dragging along.”

“Yeah, he’s creeping.”

“Hey, Herman, why are you walking so slow?”

“I’m expected to fix the problems in Iraq— which has apparently given civil war a pass, and gone straight into chaotic failed state —and my term’s up in two years!”

In the news:

[White House Press Secretary Tony] Snow bristled when asked Monday whether Baker’s report would be the fig-leaf for a major policy shift.

‘The president doesn’t look for cover,’ Snow said in Washington. ‘What he looks for is information to help formulate the best judgments about how to move forward.’

Where that path leads is unclear, leaving the US capital in a state of suspended animation as the death toll in Iraq keeps rising.

    Not sure that the report’s recommendations, maintain the fiction that Iraq is not in a state of civil war (recommending, for instance, the strengthening of a police force already divided and comprised in part of death squads – a nice figure for the country as a whole and our attempts to “strengthen” “it” producing, primarily, more efficient and/or widespread killing) can be carried out in any real sense.
