OK, here’s the deal.
Kim Jong Il goes off his meds and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (that’s North Korea for you political-geography majors at UC Berkeley) launches a Viagra enhanced version of the No-Dong missile at Kennebunkport because Dubya is there for a family weekend.

You are George Bush. You have two minutes to decide whether to ding the Dong.
What do you do?
- Call Premier Martin and ask if he can say “nucular”?
- Call Premier Martin and point out that the sovereign air space is between his ears?
- Call the American Ambassador to Canada and ask him to make an appointment with Premier Martin (preferably in someplace remote, like Moose Factory)?
- Call the Premier of Alberta and ask if he’d like to be Governor of the 51st state?
- Reduce tariffs on softwood lumber?
- Finally learn how to pronounce “nuclear”, but in French?
- Knock the No-Dong down (there’s a song title there) without permission and send Ottawa an invoice for $100 million US dollars? (Be prepared to take them to small claims court.)
- Join Canada in the Kyoto treaty so they can afford missile defense?
- None of the above?
You now have a minute and thirty seconds. The answer is blowing in the wind, which has not shifted.
