Danger in DC

from - RSA

Representative King is yet again explaining how the average citizen is safer in Iraq than in Washington, DC. Some explain that he's lying with statistics, but I prefer more direct responses:

  • Truthful contradiction: I've walked the streets of DC many times, day and night, and have felt entirely safe, but I've never been in Bagdad without being shot at.

  • Testing of implications: George W. Bush wears a flak jacket for a five hour visit to Iraq. Does he wear a bullet-proof jockstrap when he jogs in more-dangerous DC?

  • Total agreement: With 150,000 American soldiers in Iraq, it damn well better be safer than DC!
