Charlie Daniels is an American Country music singer, but more importantly, he was The Wørd for the January 23, 2006 edition of The Colbert Report. Why Charlie Daniels? Well, sometimes America has to make a deal with the Devil (or Saddam Hussein, Ferdinand Marcos, Augusto Pinochet, Papa Doc, Baby Doc, Somoza, Manuel Noriega, The Contras, The Shah, Genghis Khan, Idi Amin, Botha, Sauron, The House of Saud, The Mujahadeen, Suharto, Mobutu, etc.) in order to advance the cause of freedom around the world.
So what devil wants to deal with us now? None other than Osama Bin Laden. All he wants us to do is to pull out all our troops. If we accept his truce we can declare victory in the War on Terror, which also means victory in Iraq.
Should we do it? Well, if we didn’t make deals with the Devil, how would we ever get a sweet gold fiddle?
