Fly on the wall

I would love to hear the Senators' reactions to the presentations of the Iraqi leaders, who are doing an end-run around Tribune Bremer and his minions, and traveling straight to D.C. to present their case: Complaints of egregious overpricing and excesses by CPA personnel, unnecessary delay and expense in rebuilding; all in support of their pleas that their companies be allowed to undertake the"reconstruction" of Iraq, with less expense and more quickly.
An irresistible presentation, made at the perfect time: When Bush is asking for help at the UN; and his request for $87 billion is pending before Congress. How embarrassing. How delicious, to hear precisely how mean and corrupt our capitalist Administration is.
No, I don't want to be a fly on the wall. I want to squat in the middle of the conference table, holding a microphone.
