Spin doctor: “There ain’t no war but ours”
Excerpt from “Wag the Dog” (1997)
“Without war, you may as well take up golf”
In this scene from 1997’s “Wag the Dog”, Robert De Niro’s spin doctor explains to William H. Macy’s CIA agent that without a war, he may as well retire.
Without a war, we’re wasting all the money and energy we put into our war budget.
Without a war, we’d have nothing to do.
Creepily prescient observations from a pre-9/11 world.
