“Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed. (Applause.) And now our coalition is engaged in securing and reconstructing that country.”
…and of course Commander Codpiece was wrong again, terribly, tragically wrong. From invading the wrong country, to fighting the wrong war, to having no exit strategy, to, well, infinity.
…we offer this reprise showing:
UPDATE: Great minds think alike: One of the Internet Blogger Hall-o-Fame greatest stylists and a personal hero of mine, Jurassic Pork also is calling Chimpy’s Lieberry a collection of pop-up books. Also, too: What JP Said.
Jonathan Chait at the NYMag: Yes, George W. Bush Was a Terrible President, and No, He Wasn’t Smart
Baby Jeebus with a firecracker! What the hell is University of Texas historian Jeremi Suri doing proposing we preemptively bomb (nuke? Yes.) North Korea? Did some of the stupid leak over from Chimpy’s Liberry and coloring book emporium at SMU?
One would think that a historian would, you know, remember some history? I can only conclude that Jeremi Suri is aiming to write the definitive court history of Chimpy’s Reign of Error, probably with contributions from the whole, doomed PNAC crowd and special forward by Rummie and Cheney.
The Chimpy McStagger reading room…”will preserve for history the important decisions made by President Bush during his presidency and will embody and carry on the values of President and Mrs. Bush.”

It’s another mea culpa saying she got it wrong, but she had misgivings about it –sensed it dontcha know–yadda-yadda-yadda, but she never says who got it right, and she never will.
Drink-up, Bitchez, it’s a long retrospective and navel gaze, and she’s at least a pitcher of Mai Tai ahead of all of us.
Can the Republican Party Recover From Iraq? — The war almost killed the GOP. Whether it can come back is an open question –
by Peggy Noonan
Many of the media pundits have been writing their memoirs of what went wrong, their strange mea culpas of how they were mislead into supporting or even cheerleading the Iraq War.
I’m not sure how many of them are sincere as they rend their cloths and wash their mouths with ashes, because even though they all admit, begrudgingly that they got it wrong, they never, ever say who got it right:
The dirty, f***ing hippies.
And until they do, I don’t accept their apologies as anything other than pro-forma.
Yeah torture is always killer material at the Wingnuttian Komedy Klub open mic night.
