"We will smite Syria swiftly but prudently," Good Roger said. "Ferociously but cautiously. With abandon but with restraint. And if our red line is crossed again, we have crimson, magenta and puce lines to back them up."
"Have you been sniffing the printer toner again?" Bad Roger asked. "You are beginning to sound like a foreign policy wonk."
"We must stop the needless, senseless, indefensible murder of children," Good Roger said. "The United States must act to stop the slaughter of the innocent."
"You're talking about that 1-year-old boy shot to death in his stroller in Brooklyn on Sunday night, right?" Bad Roger said. "I totally agree the United States should stop such slaughter."
"I am talking about Syria!" Good Roger shouted. "We must protect the children of Syria."
"Totally agree," Bad Roger said. "But the 197 children age 12 or younger who are shot to death every year on average in America each year are worth protecting, too, aren't they? Maybe our government ought to do something about them."
"The Second Amendment gives Americans the right to shoot other Americans!" Good Roger said, a vein pulsing in his forehead. "But Syria doesn't have the Second Amendment. So we can kill Syrians to keep them from killing other Syrians!"
"I see you have been watching cable news again," Bad Roger said, "because your logic has become impeccable."
Good Roger is the decent, sincere, well-meaning side of me. Nobody much likes him. Bad Roger is the snarky, sarcastic, cynical side of me. People often buy him drinks.
