24. How this will play out in the 'war of the pundits'
Once this takes hold in the public mind the Forces of Evil will spin this as 'Bush is a decisive leader who makes bold decisions without regard to polls, there's a war on, 9/11, Al-Qaeda wants to kill 100,000 of us, 9/11, and, oh yeah, Clinton got a blow job.'

To win the battle of the talking points we have to point out that

1.) he's hiding or at least soft-pedaling this until after the election (Arent there quotes out there saying there are no plans to reinstate the draft? There's gotta be something in the record we can nail him on...)

and 2.) We wouldn't *need* a draft if Bush hadn't fucked things up so badly in the middle east by invading a country that had nothing to do with 9/11, and lying about all the reasons to manufacture a mandate.

Speakin' of that Al-Qaeda '100,000 dead' threat reported , who the hell is, anyway??? If you wanted to scare the U.S. population into accepting a draft without too much complaining, this is the kind of story you'll want to run, right??
