Liar, Liar, President's Pants On Fire

The Iraq Study group--evenly split between five Republicans and five Democrats--released its long anticipated report today. And the bottom line? President Bush's war policies have failed in almost every regard.

What? Huh? But I thought things were going really well in Iraq!! Isn't that what our fearless leader--who's Vietnam era war record consists of a dental appointment in Alabama--has been telling us for the last several years? Isn't that also what Dick Cheney--who avoided military service in the '60's by getting five deferments--has been telling us?

My God.... Could it possible that our President and Vice President have been (GASP!) LYING to us all this time!?!?!?!?!?

The report goes on to say that the violence in Iraq is bad and getting worse, and that there is no guarantee of success. In terms of where to go from here, the panel said that there is no military solution to what is happening in Iraq. The only way out is to get Syria and Iran involved and trying to come up with a political solution.

Well, that's just freakin' great. If we have to rely on those two to save our asses, we may as well drop trou now because we are royally fucked.

This dire report comes just one day after incoming Secretary of Defense Robert Gates told a Senate panel that the United States is "not winning" in Iraq, and on the same day that another ten American soldiers died in that godforsaken hellhole.

With any luck, Bush will be up all night trying to get the blood off his hands.
