It’s a sad day when there’s about a 50 percent chance that some MSM outlet will run with this satirical piece by Jim Treacher thinking its reality, or at least thinking they can trick people into thinking its reality.

Close The Door

Posted by Mike on September 3, 2008

Barack Obama’s ties to terrorist William Ayres is fair game and should have been the subject of a thousand media questions over the last year and a half.  Obama’s prior cocaine use however, should not. Not unless liberals open the door that is. If left wing blogs and the mainstream media (a distinction without a difference?) can mention Todd Palin’s 22 year old DUI conviction, then they’ve opened the door. Last night, Newt Gingrich walked through the door.

The left opened a door that should remain closed, but here we are.

Petraeus: Iraq “Spiraling Upwards”

Posted by Ryan on September 3, 2008

David Petraeus indicated today that a pullout of MNF (Multi-National Forces) around the Baghdad area is probably possible by next summer due to conditions on the ground.  He also said that the area is “‘spiraling upwards’ towards normal conditions” and “it gives Iraq new hope.”  What great news from a straight-shooter and American hero who’s shown he would not deceive us for political reasons!

Before the Palin pick, General Petraeus and the increasing dividends of the successful “Surge” strategy were McCain’s best-friend and an issue I hope they return to in earnest once the Convention fever wears out sometime late next week. 

Both O’Biden and Obama were dead wrong on this issue.  And will someone in the McCain campaign please bring up O’Biden’s advocacy of the worst-thought-out foreign policy concept in a generation: splitting Iraq into a weak confederacy of three weak parts?  It wouldn’t take five minutes for civil war, regional conflict with the Kurds, Iran, and al Qaeda to plunge the region into an apocalyptic scorched-earth dead zone.  It would have truly been war without end.  Luckily, Biden wasn’t in a position to see his plan work.  Let’s keep it that way.
