Iraqi PM May Ask Washington To Withdraw Petreaus

This, along with the story concerning the Iraqi Government dropping the construction projects, was the main news on all the evening newscasts tonight.

Iraq will be in governmental meltdown by September.

Bush should have used the life preserver the Iraq Study Group threw him.

A key aide says Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's relations with Gen. David Petraeus are so poor the Iraqi leader may ask Washington to withdraw the overall U.S. commander from his Baghdad post.

Iraq's foreign minister calls the relationship "difficult." Petraeus, who says their ties are "very good," acknowledges expressing his "full range of emotions" at times with al-Maliki. U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker, who meets with both at least weekly, concedes "sometimes there are sporty exchanges."

Oh well, 4,000 American lives, 50,000 wounded, hundreds of thousands of Iraqi lives lost or destroyed, more than $1 trillion spent, and an explosion in the National Debt, international trust and respect of America trashed, The Constituion shreaded...

and poor Georgie doesn't even get to tell his daddy "I told you so." But Barbara is still proud as hell of her boy.

Can you, um, like, withdraw your OTHER 160,000 troops along with Petraeus?

Does It Rhyme with Loner

So, who is the latest to be rumored as a client of the DC Madam? He’s in Congress, a Republican, and he’s from Ohio.

The Buckeye State Blog has revealed that the next member of Congress who will be revealed as a client of the DC Madam's, the way David Diapers Vitter (R-LA) was, will be a Republican member of the Ohio congressional delegation.

I’m not usually the one to throw down the rumors and all, but when your name starts with a “B” and it rhymes with “Loner,” and the rumor is that you’ve been frequenting call girls. . . . Sorry, I can’t resist. OK, ok, I didn’t start the rumor. I just heard it over at Howie Klein’s place.
