Shhhhhh!!! Iraq the vote...

Don't tell the media or anything, but people are going to have a bunch of purple fingers today. The need to ignore this whole thing so they can continue the illusion that victory against terror and tyranny is a great big Michael Moore quality lie.

I'm sure the highlight will be more towards how many people were killed in Iraq instead of how many people voted. Hey, if it bleeds it leads, right? Maybe the voters should just cut a finger open instead of the purple ink? Would that make MSNBC nightly news? Obviously, Bush being anything other than a lying baby killer must have just been misreported. We now return you to your originally scheduled dose of trivial crap...Oh, and I won't be making my finger purple today. I'll reserve that for the ones proving thier freedom today: The Sunni Iraqis.

Yes, I specified Sunni because they're actually playing along with this whole democracy thing now. Oh, damn! I wasn't supposed to talk about things like that. The good people of the world might find out that Iraq isn't the living hell the MSM makes it out to be.

Forget all of this message. I don't know why I wrote it. We should be going against the wishes of the majority of Iraqis and "redeploy". (See cut-and-run) Oops, I did it again. (Not like Brittany) I let it out of the bag that the majority of Iraqis perfer there to be at least one American in each group of Iraqi military because they trust the U.S. more than their own soldiers.

Aww, hell. Who am I kidding. Everybody should have figured at least a couple of these things out by themselves. Not even the love child of Dan Rather and Walter Cronkite (*shudder*) can keep an image like this down.

May the god of your choice bless the freedom of Iraq!

Iraq the vote!

Not to bust your "the MSM is victimizing me!" pity party too much, but it's only the top story:

"BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqis voted in a historic parliamentary election Thursday, with strong turnout reported in Sunni Arab areas and even a shortage of ballots in some precincts. Several explosions rocked Baghdad throughout the day, but the level of violence was low.

The heavy participation by the Sunnis, who had shunned balloting last January, bolstered U.S. hopes of calming the insurgency enough to begin withdrawing its troops next year.

Because of the large turnout, the Iraqi election commission extended voting for one hour, as long lines were reported at some sites, said commission official Munthur Abdelamir. Some preliminary returns were expected late Thursday, and the Iraqi election commission said Thursday the results of parliamentary election will be announced within two weeks."

Take another look guy. It's NOT the lead story online. Katrina reruns are.

"I'm sure the highlight will be more towards how many people were killed in Iraq instead of how many people voted"

And the highlight is . . .

Oh, just admit you were wrong. It is not so hard, really. What you predicted the "MSN", namely MSNBC, would not report was in fact reported . . . exactly. Right?

If you're scared, say you're scared. If not, say your prognostication turned out to be incorrect this time.

"Signs of reconstruction in Iraq

Despite the insurgency, the U.S. is fulfilling promises to rebuild the country"

I totally see your point.

I know what you mean Jer. MSM will talk about it because it's news, but they won't carry on and on about it because it's not bad news.

I can believe "if it bleeds it leads". I cannot believe in some vast left-wing conspiracy anymore than I can believe the LAPD conspired to convict O.J.

I challenge you to a blog war. We can throw fettucini at one another.
