Imagine this

Two delightful riffs in the New York Times on imaginary situations. Maureen Dowd imagines Donald Rumsfeld (aka Rummy) wrestling with an angel who's come to help him. The angel, Clarence, shows him what "the world would have been like if you'd never been born." Read the full thing to find out what happens to Osama, Wolfie, Dick and, um, Mrs Rumsfeld.

On an equally entertaining note, William Safire imagines what would have happened if the Bush administration had not invaded Iraq. It's a superbly imagined chain of events, ending with the "Plot Against America, Part II" being foiled.
