Rep Mike Pence Smackdown Time
Well, I wouldn't have thought Glenn Greenwald could get much higher in my esteem but this takes him thru the roof.
The people who claim "the surge is working"(*ed note- I've never had to wear body armour at Indiana outdoor markets.
I have remained steadily optimistic as a result of the inspiring reports of the great progress of our Glorious Surge, accompanied by the re-assuring vows that we are now on the Road to Sweet Victory. But I confess that I've been plagued by some nagging doubts, mostly due to the pessimistic media.
Thankfully, all of those doubts were dispelled when, this morning, I read in The Washington Post these very comforting descriptions from Indiana Republican Rep. Mike Pence, one of the war supporters who joined John McCain on his relaxing stroll through a Baghdad market:Another member of the delegation, Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.), declared that it was "like a normal outdoor market in Indiana in the summertime."
He doesn't just take Mike "Damien" Pences' word for it.... noooooo, why should he?
