"Oh! Oh! I Got It! Here's How We Spin This!"

It's been a tough week for the Left, what with Zarqawi dead, Rove free, and Bush in Baghdad meeting with the new government.

Have no fear: CBS "blogger" Brian Montopoli at The Public Eye has figured out the angle, in his smirkily entitled post, "Baghdad Bush."

We're curious how the press is going to play the secrecy angle. When the president made his surprise trip to Iraq for Thanksgiving, the White House could explain the secrecy of the trip by focusing on how Bush's visit was a morale-boosting surprise for the troops. This time, however, even Bartlett acknowledges that "a very determined enemy" and a dangerous security situation necessitated keeping the Iraqi government and much of the cabinet and press in the dark. One wonders whether the story of this trip will be Bush's "personal effort to ensure the success of the new government," as the White House hopes, or if instead journalists will focus on the fact that the president even now has to take relatively dramatic measures to ensure his safety in Baghdad.

Pathetic, yet funny for the same reason. Yeah Brian, there's your angle. The Iraq War is such a DISASTER that even Bush cannot walk down the street signing autographs and posing for pictures without fear of his life!

And I love the use of The Royal We. So typically effete of the journalist type. Keep it up, CBS. You're doin' a heckuva job.

Schmucks only have a few more years of this bellyaching leftist nonsense before either we win or we lose and their Muslim overlords show them what true intolerance is all about.
