    ...and,  ahh,  people voted in thier elections.

    Why would you focus only on the "bad news" from Iraq.

    Around 100 people were killed in terrorist attacks in Iraq this weekend alone and a new school opened up.

    But you people wont talk about the schools that are opening up or that we almost have the electricity grid back to where it was under Saddam.

    Now there a story, "People almost have Electricity"

    If London or New York city had 100 people killed in bombings but the same weekend a school opened, which story would they dwell on? The School would be on the front page.

    That is what I mean about the biased coverage in Iraq, not enough stories about the schools!

    Parody is free speech! This is free speech! This is Parody!

    •  Hi, Mr. Pres (none)
      Why do you have to open schools? For a long time, Iraq's people were highly educated. Did GW I, then the sanctions, then GW II destroy the schools? Hospitals, too? Highways? Oil industry? Utilities?

      Yes, we are opening schools in Iraq. Terrorist training schools. Scholarships available, all applicants welcome regardless of GPA. In fact, the lower the GPA, the better.

      And we offer excellent post-graduate job placement services, too.

      It is not the responsibility of the state to help its citizens get into heaven nor to save them from hell.

    •  Question, Mr. President! (none)
      We've long heard that you plan to harvest opium in Afghanistan, refine it in Iran, truck it to Iraq, then move it on military transports to Germany for further, world-wide, distribution. My question is: has the situation in Iran put a crimp in your plans? If so, what do you plan to do about it? And, if I may follow-up, could you provide us with a progress report on the drug pipeline and what its long-term affects will be?
