Snarky Behavior

I’m Seeing Ahmadinejad!

September 19, 2007 · 2 Comments

It turns out, compulsively checking your e-mail pays dividends.

Nearly a year to the day that Columbia University’s President Lee Bollinger nixed then Dean Lisa Anderson’s invitation to Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to come speak at the School for International and Public Affairs, it was rather quietly announced that he will be making an appearance on Monday.

Based on the number of times the server crashed at the World Leaders Forum site while I scrambled to reserve a seat, I think this should be an interesting affair.

What do I ask him??? Do I invite him to play a game of Risk??? Israel’s not on that map… I think we could find common ground. Until I conquered Australia, swept through Indonesia and marched across Asia to send him back to the Middle East in shame.

This puts my official “crazy world leaders seen in person count” at 3: Bush, Castro and Ahmadinejad.

    Jon, this is fine and dandy. However, I do legitimately worry that he will vaporize you and three new york city blocks with an explosive made out of peeps, fertilizer, and a sundial.

    If they allow a Q&A session, you need to get yourself tasered and then post the video here. Ask him what his favorite brand of designer sunglasses are, and if his plans for Tel Aviv include blue carpet and gold curtain rods.
