Senator Cook and his surprise Presidential campaign takes flight as polls suggest he could secure a victory in next months election
“Dallas are you seeing this?”
“I’m hearing it babe, but all I’m seeing right now is brown and diaper.”
Cook claims his regime is capable of righting the lean of the nation towards international independence
“What does that even mean?”
“Means he wants to make America great again.”
“Heard that before.”
Cook alleges that the rise of the East, specifically China, has its basis in internal strength
“Does that mean we are weak Dee? Like as a nation?”
“I’ve spent a lot of time over there babe. People do as they’re told. Not saying it’s the best way to be, but they’ve got a lot of things right that we don’t. It’s safe over there. No guns.”
“S’long as you follow their rules, sure. I heard the triads use swords. Is that right?”
That they do, thought Dallas, attaching velcro straps over Andromeda’s belly. And I would never want to cross those that wield them.
