Schroeder's Diary

Satirists Bruce Kluger and David Slavin have discovered that German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder was secretly tortured by his diplomatic missteps. Schroeder angered President Bush earlier this fall when he denounced the planned U.S. invasion of Iraq. Conspicuously missing from the president's agenda this week in Prague was a meeting with the German leader. Our satirists present a series of diary entries that present Schroeder as a heartbroken lover.
