*****UPDATE: Bush is sending Assitant Secretary of State William Burns. This choice sends two messages: First, that Bush correctly regards Arafat as a lowly figure whose funeral does not require sending anyone with a higher standing than an assistant. The second message is subliminal: the assistant's last name suggests what Arafat's eternal soul should suffer - and where.

W should send BJ to Yasser's funeral
W should send BJ Clinton to be the emissary for the USA at Yasser's funeral in Cairo. After all, BJ met with Yasser more than any other foreign leader. Besides, sending an impeached president to attend a terrorist's state-sponsored funeral just seems fitting, doesn't it!? If BJ is unavailable, how about Teresa Heinz? If she can't sober up in time, how about Jimmy Carter? Or Howard Dean? Or Ramsey Clark? Then there's Tom Daschle, no!? NO, NO! I got it; I got it: Michael Moore!
