If Only...Redux

Today, Biff and Wanda — the blow-dried anchorpeople of the "Action McNews" newscast —, host the war criminal, William Krstol Unclear, to justify another military venture in Iraq. A Biff and Wanda strip almost always ends with a cut to a commercial break ("Now, these messages!"), but the exchange with Kristol Unclear created a new vibe on the "Action McNews" set. In Tom Tomorrow's alternate universe, Kristol Unclear is zapped into an interdimensional realm and — in Tomorrow's imaginary world — the same fate awaits the claque of war criminals (Cheney, Wolfowitz, Perle, Bolton, Kinda-Lies-A-Lot Rice, and The Dubster) who sold the lies that put U.S. troops in harm's way (2003-2013). If this is (fair & balanced) imaginary war crime prosecution, so be it.
