It's so safe in Iraq, one can go shopping with ease, and get shot at while flying in a plane

If you're a member of the U.S. Congress, you might think twice before flying Air Evasive Maneuvers:
A military airplane carrying four members of the U.S. Congress came under fire over Iraq on Thursday but the plane was not hit and no one was hurt, a spokesman for one of the lawmakers said on Friday.
Mmmm. The Baghdad skies: Lean back, soar among the clouds, and....DUCK!
The C-130 cargo aircraft conducted evasive maneuvers after a nighttime takeoff from Baghdad, said Ken Lundberg, spokesman for Sen. Mel Martinez of Florida, who was on the plane.
At least it was a bipartisan attack.
In addition to Martinez, the plane was carrying fellow Republican Sens. Richard Shelby of Alabama and James Inhofe of Oklahoma, and Alabama Rep. Robert "Bud" Cramer, a Democrat.
To quote our favorite Wide-Stancer, "Jiminy!"

The world is so much safer since we invaded Iraq, isn't it? Maybe during their next trip, the Congressmen can take a late-night stroll and stop for a cup of IEDs.

But the Petraeus/White House Report says we're makin' real progress.

Stay the course.

Hard work.

Go Cheney yourselves.

ARe we sure Cheney's undisclosed location isn't in Baghdad? We know what kind of shot he is.

They weren't shot in the face, so I'll give Deadeye Dick a pass on this one.

But this is the last time I'll do that.

Yeah, but he shot a guy in the face from like ten feet away.
Cheney couldn't hit the side of a barn with a Mack truck.

Cheney couldn't fit into a Mack truck.
