On the radio just now, I heard speculation about just who President Bush should send to attend Yassir Arafat’s funeral. A few thoughts I had:
Sarah Michelle Gellar, just in case the scumbag should rise from the dead.
The Tidy-Bowl Man, to give him the final flush.
DeForest Kelley, to finally pronounce “he’s dead, Jim.” (Unfortunately, Bones himself has passed on.)
But the best idea so far, trumping my above suggestions, was Bill and Hillary Clinton. After all, Bill was the President who actually gave the world’s most successful terrorist the veneer of respectability and the official imprimatur of the approval of the United States of America.
Besides, we could always give them one-way tickets…
