MAHMOUD AHMADINEJAD: Tick, tick, tick...

Today (Friday) is the day of reckoning for Mahmoud "Mojo" Ahmadinejad, the UN Security Council's deadline to cease enrichment of uranium. Gee, we wonder how Mojo will finally come down on this weighty issue after all that time to ponder. Think he'll see the light of reason?

Well, judging by the most recent tea leaves, Mojo must have the shades pulled down. Reuters says Iran has just received "a first shipment of missiles from North Korea that are capable of reaching Europe. . ." Read all about it. Golly, why'd he want to go and do a thing like that? Weren't we supposed to be in a dialogue—as in reasoning together? Did we hear somebody say "Axis of Evil?" HT to Yaakov Kirschen at the Dry Bones Blog.

Doesn't Mojo understand we all just want to get along? Kind of reminds us of a New Yorker cartoon, in which one of an assemblage of Upper Manhattan beautiful people says to another cocktailer, "You know, I think those Islamic fundamentalists would like us if they just go to know us."

Yeah, and maybe today will be the dawning of the Age of Aquarius at long last. You think?
