Your High School Studen Council Gone Wild

Watching James Baker and Lee Hamilton and the rest of the ISG oozing self-importance and slapping each other's backs, all I could think of was my high school student council.

Remember those pompous, clueless kids so desperately seeking popularity and power? Remember the time they wasted on irrelevant resolutions and pointless debates? Remember how proud your local student council president was announcing the "official position" of a bunch of 16-year-olds on nuclear disarmament and apartheid?

Well, they're back. Only this time, they could get us all killed.
