Dan Rather, Cokie Roberts and a Marine


> CBS News Anchor Dan Rather, NPR Reporter Cokie Roberts, and a U.S.
Marine
> were hiking through the desert one day when they were captured by
Iraqis.
> They were tied up, led to the village and brought before the leader. The
> leader said, "I am familiar with your western custom of granting the
> condemned a last wish. Before we kill and dismember you, do you have any
> last requests?"
>
> Dan Rather said, "Well, I'm a Texan, so I'd like one last bowlful of
hot,
> spicy chili."
>
> The leader nodded to an underling who left and returned with the chili.
>
> Rather ate it all and said, "Now I can die content."
>
> Cokie Roberts said, "I'm a reporter to the end. I want to take out my
tape

> someday someone will hear it and know that I was on the job 'til the
end."
>
> The leader directed an aide to hand over the tape recorder, and Roberts

> The leader turned and said, "And now, Mr. U.S. Marine, what is your
final

>
> "Kick me in the butt," said the Marine."
>
> "What?" asked the leader. "Will you mock us in your last hour?"
>
> "No, I'm not kidding. I want you to kick me in the behind," insisted the

> So the leader shoved him into the open, and kicked him in the ass. The

from

confusion, he

> with gunfire. In a flash, the Iraqis were dead or fleeing for their
lives.

> As the Marine was untying Rather and Roberts, they asked him, "Why
didn't

>
> What!?" said the Marine, "And have you liberal assholes call ME the
