Suppose you were the President of the Republic of Georgia. Your army has been routed in a battle with Russian troops, who are now roaming around your country doing whatever they feel like. The situation is desperate. How can you rally your countrymen in this crisis?

I'm just guessing here, but going on Glenn Beck's show on CNN Headline News was probably not the first idea that popped into your head, was it? Yet that is exactly what the REAL President of Georgia, Ed Hardtospell, is doing as this is written, 9:12 p.m. EDT (I'm sure it's on tape, but still, he did it).

The citizens of Georgia must be proud of him. Beck's show is seen by very few Americans, and frankly, they're not real influential in policy-making circles. Georgia has a President too lame for Larry King.

Memo to the President: The barstools, not to mention the graveyards, are full of ex-foreign leaders who thought that because they got a lot of sympathy in the American media, that meant the American people were willing and able to help them out.

It's never a good bet.
