The sham congressional "debates" on the Iraq War led us to wonder just how many jingoists, knaves, and fools who voted for the Iraq War could have picked out an outline of that unfortunate place in a line-up of five or six other suspects?

Then we began to wonder, how much world geography do We, the People know? So we decided to test ourselves.

As a result, we are now proposing this Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:
"(1) No congressman, senator, president, or American voter is allowed to provide any moral or material support for the U.S. military invasion of another country unless he or she first scores at least 100 points on the Lizard-Point GeoQuiz for the continent or geographical area proposed to be invaded.

"(2) Repeat testing shall be allowed, but only after asking nicely in the native tongue of the place to be invaded."
