Bush's bad timing

Boy, Bush sure did pick a bad day to tell us everything is peachy in Iraq.

President Bush, launching a new bid to halt the long slide in support for the occupation of Iraq, urged Americans Thursday to be optimistic and assured the public that the U.S. efforts there are proceeding better than it appears.

Addressing reservists and National Guardsmen at a time when more are expected to be sent to Iraq to quell violence and disorder, the president marked the sixth month of the fall of Baghdad by bidding Saddam Hussein "good riddance" and noting that the seemingly chaotic situation in Iraq is "a lot better than you probably think."

Phew! That's a relief. Because I thought that in the last 24 hours we had lost 8 Iraqi policemen with another 45 injured, one Spanish military attache, 3 American soldiers dead and at least five others wounded. I also thought that ambushes and attacks on American forces were increasing according to that LIEberal propagandist Lt. Gen Ricardo Sanchez, commander of coalition forces in Iraq.

But thanks to our dear leader I feel warm and comforted. And now that Condi is in charge (quick, someone let Rummy know), things are bound to get even better!

(Though if things are going so great, why put her in charge?)
