Iran threatens to Sue (Ahmadinejad, Call Gina!)

Iran is evidently threatening to sue Western nations for damage to its reputation. I’m sympathetic. Sometimes I feel the same way. And anyway, everybody’s doing it. We live in a litigious society. But if they’re going to do this, what the mullahs need is a good lawyer. (Never mind if he’s Jewish. This is business.) So my suggestion is they follow the lead of that other lawsuit minded potential litigant Gina Gershon who has hired the Century City firm of Lavely & Singer in her dustup with Vanity Fair. Those guys know how to go for the throat. [Bad analogy in this instance. -ed. Yeah, you’re right.]
