Tin Hat Tuesday: Trojan Camel

equo ne credite, Teucri.
quidquid id est, timeo Danaos et dona ferentis

The lines above are from Book II of Virgil's Aeneid, which covers the siege of Troy and basically means "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts". It is apparent that President Bush should put down "My Pet Goat" and read up on the Greek story of The Trojan Horse before accepting any more "gifts" from Iran.

According to the World Weekly News or "the news", our buddies in Iran sent a giant, wooden camel to The White House. Condoleezza Rice noted that the president plans on displaying the camel on the White House lawn and Rice wants to parade it down Pennsylvania Avenue as a sign of our friendship with Iran.

The wooden camel is 50-feet wide and 100-feet tall and is constructed with lightweight palms...but weighs 3 tons. "There must be a heavy iron framework inside -- or something," stated one White House spokesperson.

"I've got a bad feeling about this," said Senator Stanton Ansley of Utah. "All I ask is two days notice before the camel arrives so I can get my family out of the city."

The quote from Ansley in the story bothers me since the 2 Senators from Utah are named Orrin Hatch and Robert Bennett. Could "Senator Stanton Ansley" be in the plot as well? Now we have both a rogue Senator and a Trojan Camel to deal with.
