Joe the Reporter (Update 2)

Joe the PlumberWar Reporter, checking in from Israel, says reporters shouldn’t be reporting on war:

I’ll be honest with you. I don’t think journalists should be anywhere allowed war. I mean, you guys report where our troops are at. You report what’s happening day to day. You make a big deal out of it. I-I think it’s asinine. You know, I liked back in World War I and World War II when you’d go to the theater and you’d see your troops on, you know, the screen and everyone would be real excited and happy for’em.

    And here is this little man, a vestige of ignorance’s domain over the 20th century, proudly catapulting his self-contradictions in a grasping attempt to become something other than a pallid footnote to a failed ideology’s terminal political miscalculation.

    Dance, puppet, dance. Amuse us a while longer. Soon, the public’s hunger will want much more than you can offer.

    Did I miss it? Is there a quota America has to fill requiring us to have a particular number of ignorant assholes holding microphones pretending to be reporters??

    There’s a reason Curly doesn’t have a plumbing license.
