Newt Gingrich, Sharron Angle, and Co. have been turning over every rock in America in an insane quest to find evidence of Sharia Law. Seems to me that they may have just found it, though. No, not here: in Qatar, which was just awarded FIFA's 2022 World Cup! (Russia got 2018, so call it double victory for oil money.) And because Qatar recognizes Muslim law, there's no drinking, outside of a few of the high-end hotels. So Newt's not the only one with a gripe. How well is a dry World Cup going to sit with the fans from England, Germany, the Netherlands--hell, anyone?
Possible upside: binge drinking and 120-degree temperatures don't mix well.
