MAHMOUD AHMADINEJAD: Now that’s going too far

It barely made news: Mahmoud "Mojo" Ahmadinejad has flubbed his dub and missed the United Nations Security Council deadline for halting the enrichment of uranium today. Probably an oversight on Mojo's part. Maybe he'll stop tomorrow.

Meanwhile, he's been quoted as saying recent oil price jumps are good. In fact, he'd like to see oil prices keep on arisin'—to $100 a barrel or more. Now, it was bad enough when Mojo said Israel should be annihilated. That set tongues clucking at the Manhattan cocktail parties. Even worse when he said becoming a nuclear power was Iran's birthright, which even brought the disapproval of the normally tolerant rogues’ gallery known as the United Nations.

But now this oil demagoguery—why, I do believe the boy has finally crossed the line. We say it's time to get tough and revoke Mojo's library privileges for once and for all. How much, after all, can we be expected to take?
