DEM COMMERCIAL: GOOD on NATIONAL SECURITY???
by Michael Hammerschlag
Setting: Attractive 40ish couple on couch watching TV of Bush.
“The Democrats want to leave Iraq. We want to win in Iraq.”
DAVE: That’s why they sent a third of the troops needed.
LISA: And invaded a country that hadn’t killed a single American in ten years.
DAVE: And lied through their teeth- “uranium from Africa, mushroom clouds, WMD”.. all baloney.
LISA: A billion people hate our guts now- the world used to love Americans. That’s sure making us safer.
DAVE: And Cheney is running around promoting torture and canceling the Geneva Conventions. The foundations of human decency that protects our soldiers.
LISA: What do you expect from a guy who gave $20 billion of no bid contracts to his own company.
DAVE: Giving our troops contaminated water, running empty trucks through the desert, blowing them up when they get a flat- yeah, Halliburton’s done a great job all right.
LISA: On us.
DAVE: Now Iraq will be a haven for terrorists, be tied to Iran, and have a nightmare civil war, and we’re the little Dutch Boy with our finger in the dyke. Forever!
LISA: If the Republicans have their way. 2800 dead, 20,000 wounded, hundreds of thousands psychologically crippled- what a waste!
DAVE: They let the insurgents loot 250,000 tons of munitions. Bush ignored the warnings about Bin Laden attacking America, he froze before schoolkids while terrorist planes homed in on Washington, he let Bin Laden get away in Tora Bora, and then pulled the Army from Afghanistan before the job was done to do this crazy invasion in the heart of Arabia.

LISA: Now North Korea has nukes and Iran is making them and Bush hasn’t done a thing about it.
DAVE: And Republicans think they’re good on national security?????
LISA: Good for Osama.
