(9:13 PM) | Adam Kotsko:
Her Noble SacrificeSecretary of State Condoleeza Rice is attending a regional conference which will include Iran, ostensibly to discuss the situation in Iraq. But we here at The Weblog have just received word that Secretary Rice has agreed to what amounts to a suicide mission -- in the middle of the conference, US agents posing as Iranians will kill Ms. Rice. Then our crack team of computer hackers will gain control of Iranian President Ahmadinejad’s blog and plant a post taking credit for the assassination. With this perfect pretext for war in hand, President Bush will drive forward to Tehran, leading a full international coalition and commanding domestic approval ratings in the mid-40's.
After the invasion, we will get a new plot twist: not only is Condi miraculously alive, but she's running for president... of Iran!
