So I was reading a short story where the President switched bodies with a 5th grader immediately post-9/11 and this happened:
On Tuesday at recess, Jimmy holds court on the brewing international crisis. ”Iran did 9/11,” Jimbo says. ”We should nuke ‘em.”
"That’s stupid," says the President. Jimmy sounds like Wolfowitz.
"You’re stupid," says Jimmy.
"Am not!" says the President. "You can’t just nuke people.”
"You would know," Jimmy says. "You’re always running home to watch the news.”
The President sighs heavily. Jimmy will never understand. There is a big difference between nuking people and liberating them. This is why ten-year-olds are not in charge of foreign policy.
