John McCain on the Lighter Side of Baghdad

"You read every day about suicide bombings, kidnappings, rocket attacks and other terrible acts. What we don't read about and what is new is a lot of the good news -- the drop in the murders in Baghdad, the establishment of security outposts throughout the city ... the deployment of additional Iraqi brigades to Baghdad."

- Senator John McCain during a recent photo-op in Baghdad

So what's up with the body armor, John?

In fact, things are going so well in Baghdad that the snipers decided to get right back to work the day after McCain and his cameras, machine guns, body armor, tanks and helicopters left the area.

The merchants at the market had some interesting things to say about the McCain press junket as well. Maybe McCain should've handed out the same rose-colored glasses he was wearing to all the folks in the market that day.

Best line by an Iraqi merchant EVER ......

"They were just making fun of us and paid this visit just for their own interests," he said. "Do they think that when they come and speak few Arabic words in a very bad manner it will make us love them? This country and its society have been destroyed because of them and I hope that they realized that during this visit."

Right on, brother.

That was exactly my first thought, just looking at the photo, before reading the post.

This whole trip was really a very sad display.

You'd think, a former POW not only would not want others to go through what he did, but following that logic, would not lie about shit like this! ; (

McSurge is so batshit crazy, even many wingers don't like him! Now that is pretty bad considering how much they love a lunatic!

How much do you think the american tax payer had to pony up for this photo op?

Great minds think alike.

He's obviously brain-damaged, which unfortunately makes him a perfect candidaate for president.

LOL @ McSurge.

Enough money to buy cardoard and paint to overthrow the country.

Emphasis on Whitey.

Indeed! McCain should count his lucky stars that he was accompanied by such a force.

Immediate withdrawal!

I love the merchant's comment. They're bullshit detector is pretty finely tuned. I'd be feeling that way too if some foreign superpower took a big dump on my country too.

Oh yeah and there were also several Black hawk copters flying around above McStain. That's my new name for McCain. McStain--I like it. It rhymes and everything.
