McCain Visits Potemkin Village, Convinces The Rest of World We’re Fucking Nuts

I can rewrite headlines. I should also say that the article itself is a bit weird:

“This visit confirms that the Republicans believe that the Iraqi war is very important in the fight against terrorism in the Middle East,” said Wael Abdul Latif, an independent Shiite member of the Iraqi Parliament. “It’s a message to Iran that the United States will never leave, even after Bush is gone.”

That’s nice, but most Iraqis aren’t like Latif, and among the things that scare them is the idea that we’ll never leave.

In the spirit of evenhandedness, here’s some genuinely good news from Iraq.

  1. He says the United States will never leave like it’s a good thing. This is sad news.
