The Mattlage Award

The Egg's new "Mattlage Award" is offered to those who use weapons and violence to make the most blatantly self-defeating political statement. (Like showing your disagreement with peace protesters by firing a gun in the general area of the president -- see below, under "Moron Etc.")

Today's winners are the genius terrorists who set off bombs this morning all over Bangladesh, killing 2, wounding 140, and paralyzing the nation.

According to notes found at the blast sites, they wanted to send a message to Messrs. Bush and Blair: "Get out of Iraq! Stop killing Muslims. And if you don't, we'll . . . uh . . . kill some Muslims."
