Les Iraqxpos?

Now, there has been chatter from time to time over the last several years about how Chimpy Mc Flightsuit would really, all things being equal, rather have been commissioner of baseball.

Setting aside musings on what a more placid and prosperous world we would inhabit in such a scenario, the Confidence Man is struck by the similarities between Despotic Townball Overlord-for-Life Bud Selig's maltreatment of the "Montreal" Expos and Sun-King George W. Bush's obsessive dismantling of Iraq.

Which leads to one obvious conclusion: in 2005, the Expos will be playing their home games under the Baghdad Bushdome.
