The beyotch goes on

Condoleezza Rice is visiting Iraq, in an surprise attempt to shore up the shaky foundations of the Iraqi government. She is counseling patience to the Iraqis, while urging the heads of state to continue building the "momentum" of the political process by writing a Constitution by August. All of this is incredibly ironic, given the Bush Cabinet's total lack of either patience or regard for our own Constitution since their assumption of office in November 2000. Rice also continued the horrendously inaccurate spin on our motivations for attacking Iraq, telling our own troops and diplomats that "[t]his war came to us, not the other way around." I would have thought that given the increasing lack of domestic support for our military presence in Iraq, Smirky and his goons would have begun coming up with another new story to tell us about why it has been a good thing for us to make war on the world.
Could it be that Master Puppeteers Cheney, Rumsfeld, and all the other psychopaths from PNAC have run out of ideas? Or are they simply "waiting" for a second "9/11" (or would that be a "third Pearl Harbor"?) to engineer a new wave of public paranoiac "patriotism"? I'm surprised they haven't begun to sound the alarms about Iran's seeming intransigence in refraining from pursuing nuclear energy. Could it be also that Rove and his pony pal Smirky too are realizing the public might not be the ignorant fools we've been played for over the last 3 3/4 years? It took us a while, guys, but maybe, just maybe, most Americans are coming to realize that having the entire world hate us is not such a good thing. Enlistments in the armed forces are waaaay down, recruiters are being "retrained" so as to not act like thugs, and journalists and even some Republican Congresspeople, columnists, and conservative groups are beginning to wake up to the fact that the far right wing is trying to destroy our government from within.
Keep talking Condoleezza; somebody might still believe you out there . . .
