I mean, it worked for Pastor Terry Jones of Gainesville, Florida, right? One minute he's a powerless non-entity -- then he announces 'International Burn a Koran Day' and threatens to set fire to 200 copies of the Muslim holy book -- suddenly he's got the attention of five continents.

When it comes to powerless non-entities, there are few people on this earth as feeble and irrelevant as we, the citizens of this benighted Republic.
