So her campaign spokespeople said she went to Iraq, then they said she didn't, and now they say she did go in about a quarter of a mile. Can't they get their lies right? Tina Fey got Palins foreign policy experience just about right - "I can see Russia from my house". Brilliant.

What can you expect from a party that brought us the Worst U.S. President of All Time (Bush the Complete Idiot or Herbert Hoover, take your pick), a simp in the form of Read My Lips Bush I, a simpleton in the form of B-Actor Reagan, and the treacherous Nixon. So pathetic how you twist and turn things into your favor through fear mongering, whether it be societal fear, war fear, or, unbelievably, tax fear. One day you'll all get yours, and it won't be pretty...think of the 2006 election as a prelude.

According to Woodward, McCain was invited to visit with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice after he publicly made the positive comments at the market. ................ "Rice had expected him to reiterate his optimism, but after some pleasantries, he let loose," Woodward writes.............. "We may be about to lose the second war in my lifetime," Woodward quotes McCain as saying to Rice. ................................McCain/Palin; continue the legacy, We outlie Bush!

In a way it's reassuring about McCain to find he knew how bad Iraq must be if that walk through a market with 100 bodyguards, snipers, and body armor was the safest situation in Iraq. I've long called him delusional on Iraq, and his claim after visiting the Shorja market was exhibit A. So I'm glad he was only saying things were going well and in fact knew better. On the other hand, we now know for sure that McCain will say in public the exact opposite of what he thinks and says in private. So about his pronouncements on Iraq getting so much better...
