The absurd and The New Yorker.

The Obama Administration and the Taliban: newyorker.com

"If giving peace talks a chance can decrease the violence and shrink the Afghan battlefield by twenty or even ten per cent, President Obama will have calculated correctly: even a partly successful negotiation might help create political conditions that favor the reduction of American forces to a more sustainable level. A Taliban-endorsed ceasefire, to build confidence around long-term talks supported by many international governments, might also be conceivable."

Bueno. Creo que es bastante evidente. Ya se debe estar comenzando a realizar una novela gráfica de Los Súper-héroes Moderados (A.K.A. Pussy Democrats). Obama va a ser el cool, hip, jive talkin', ill motherfucker, rethoric jab-jabber, dip·lo·mat·i·cal·ly rendering them sumisos. Hillary va a ser la white bitch that takes shit, but she's got my back, and so does her husband. Bill is such a horndog, that he's happy she's not around.

El soundtrack de la película sería el álbum nuevo de Braids* y audio de Lenny Bruce.

El narrador va a ser Fernando Arrabal. Jodorowsky el director. Una de las más famosas líneas lee: "Pericles era un pendejo, Diógenes el Cínico es un dios."
