Ain't we got fun?

I've had to do my first IP ban. Comment-spammers really annoy me.

Oh, and I haven't bothered to go look for a link, but I'm sure by now you've all heard and discussed the announcement that we'll have a functioning government up and running in Iraq by next June so that we can pull USofA troops out.

Just in time for the '04 elections. How convenient.

(Personally, I think they're making a mistake. Rove Bush should have targeted August or early September, instead. June leaves a lot of time for things to start falling apart over there and some negative political fallout from the same. On the other hand, maybe they're counting on the well-known disinclination of USofA voters to remember anything political that happened more than a week ago?)

And then . . . well . . . here's today's attaboy (courtesy of Avedon Carol) to Bush as he alienates pretty much his last, staunch ally.

And this would be on the eve of the first State visit in decades?

Ahhh...I see. :) Well, I guess June (late June) might have been their best choice, then.
