It might, if it's a really nice VIP lounge, like with free scotch or something. I know it's been getting a lot of play around town, but I would be remiss in my duty as a passer-along of stuff if I didn't link to the transcript of Iraq's Information Minister, Mohammed Saeed Sahaf, angrily denying that U.S. troops had entered Baghdad. Some highlights:
"Be reassured, Baghdad is safe, fortified and great. There are no American infidels in Baghdad. Never!

"They tried to bring a small number of tanks and personnel carriers in through al-Durah but they were surrounded and most of their infidels had their throats cut. "We made them drink poison last night and Saddam Hussein's soldiers and his great forces gave the Americans a lesson which will not be forgotten by history. Truly. [...] "As President Saddam Hussein said: God will roast their stomachs in hell at the hands of Iraqis.
And the early favorite for quote of the year:
"What have the desperate Americans done? They said that their soldiers have occupied the airport since the beginning of the attack. They had their forces at the VIP lounge just to say that leader Saddam Hussein used to frequent this place. See how petty and lowly these Americans are?" [...]

"They speak about buildings and walls instead of a VIP lounge. Instead of showing the tragedy of their soldiers, they speak about a lounge - does a lounge represent the dignity of a people?
Ya know, if this guy can somehow get out of Iraq, I know about 50 companies that would love to hire him for their PR departments.
