At the moment when I think the world is safe to blog in again, I run into something like this and I fall down, boggling, all over again.

So...the Mayor of Baghdad that we (i.e., Bremer) installed in Baghdad has been ousted and replaced at gunpoint. In Baghdad.

No form of rational, organized government has any control over any part of that country, does it?

Surely it is all part of the Administration's very clever plan to make the terrorists feel comfortable in Iraq so they'll drop their guard. And even a sharp Bush critic like you must admit that the plan is working - the terrorists have never felt so comfortable in Iraq as they do now. So clearly Bush is a great genius.

Not unusual at all. Why here in Cleveland the present mayor gained office by storming city hall with a combination of paramilitaries and perogi makers to seize power, and no one calls us uncivilized.
