26 October 2004 - war crimes trial

< yesterday -- tomorrow >

judge: I hereby call this, the first American war crimes trial, to order.
audience: Ha ha ha ha!
prosecutor: I will show Mr. Rumsfeld to be a living symbol of racial hatreds, of terrorism and violence, and of the arrogance and cruelty of power.
audience: Ha ha ha ha!
Rumsfeld: I am not a crook.
audience: Ha ha ha ha!
announcer: And that’s just a sample of what you’ll see on Comedy Essential!
audience: Ha ha ha ha!


For “living symbol”, compare Nuremberg. For “I am not a crook” see Watergate.

give me a clue so sweet and true
