Apparently--except for a toy soldier being held hostage--there is nothing going on in Iraq that the media is reporting. Let me rephrase that--there is nothing going on there (like Freedom, etc. ) that the media can twist to hurt the U.S. right now.
I noted just prior to the Iraqi election the number of stories being discussed over at Memeorandum that were negative doom and gloom essays/headlines. I guess Scrappleface was right! The Iraqi voting disrupted news reports of bombing! Amazing.
