NEWS BLACKOUT ON CIVIL WAR?
I'm assuming there must be some sort of Bush-imposed news blackout on the all-out civil war that has been raging in Iraq.
War Hero Murtha, the mainstream media, Arianna, and the rest of gang up on Doomsday Hill have assured us that there is a terrible civil war tearing Iraq apart and that we should be making preparations to depart with all due haste.
Yet, as I flip through the news channels all I hear is the usual stuff. "Iran tests secret missile, 20 killed in Pakistan clashes, , tornadoes in midwest U.S. kill 30, bus plunges off cliff in Chile killing 18 tourists, Eminem divorcing again....
But not a peep about Iraq in the news today. Doesn't that seem unusal considering that the entire country is in the midst of all-out civil war?
Arianna Huffington, writing in her blog today said that she and many Republicans believe "our mission [in Iraq] has failed" and that the most important thing in determining what we do next is "the acknowledgement of defeat."
I'll bet there is a big party at Arianna's 7 million dollar Brentwood mansion tonight to celebrate the 'good news'. They'll have those little zucchini finger sandwiches, a nice bottle of Cakebread Chardonay and kiss each other on both cheeks.
How about you folks out there in the real world? Do you think we need an 'acknowledgement of defeat'? Or do you think that's exactly what the Dems will be acknowledging (again) in November?
