Understanding Iraq (via The Simpsons)

A friend suggested the other day that the Simpsons' TV episode that helps us to best understand what happened with the neocons in Iraq is "Marge versus the Monorail":

A fast-talking charmer (Phil Hartman) sells Springfield a monorail of dubious necessity and, Marge learns, highly dubious quality. Leonard Nimoy is aboard
for the maiden trip, with Homer at the controls.
Simpsons fans will remember that Homer stops the runaway monorail by lassoing a donut shaped sign while on board. Let's hope that the W. administration can find its donut.
Donuts. Is there anything they can't do?
