The President delivers the State of the Union tonight. According to Paul Harvey over 70% of Americans disapprove of his handling of the situation in Iraq. It occurs to me that this disapproval is based on knowledge which is much like the President’s knowledge of the presence of WMD in Iraq: it’s as good as the intelligence it’s based on. And let’s face it, the majority of Americans get their information not from soldiers on the ground, who are rather easily dismissed, but from the (leftist agenda-driven?) lame-stream media. And who can blame Americans for dismissing members of the military? As we all know those soldiers are functionally illiterate high school grads (like these guys? or these guys?) without other employment prospects, and who don’t read 18 newspapers per day, so why listen to them anyway and blah, blah, blah. Give me a chubby little break.

It may be, as some have suggested, that ‘the President’s war in Iraq’ will go down one day as the greatest story never told.

Thank you LSM. Never before in the history of the republic, perhaps, have so many horribly ignorant commoners owned to so few mal-informed aristocrats for so much propaganda from which the republic’s enemies have derived so much encouragement and her defenders so much dis-illusionment.
