George, you got some 'splaining to do

Joe Haldeman wrote this a few days before the Inauguration ...

Obama’s face does show some new strain, Dave – I hope that doesn’t mean that he’s found out we’re all doomed. I try to visualize a conference room with Obama listening to Bush and Cheney as they try to make a reasonable case for their actions. “Y’see, Barry, th’ Middle East is like a big cattlefield with four herds onnit. Mebbe five, mebbe three. Y’ follow? Th’ You-nited States is like the Marshal . . . “

Cheney: “Just tell him about the big fucking bomb in the harbor.”

That would certainly explain some things.
