If only we could call the Iraqi election, “A Seminar on the European Defense Initiative: Why NATO Is passÃƒ© and E.D.I. Is the Future”; then we could get thousands of Europeans to take part. If only we could call the Iraqi elections, “A Seminar on George Bush and Genghis Khan: Why Bush Is Worse”; then the Arab League would send so many people, we’d be turning them away. We’d be talking pay-per-view on Al Jazeera.
