    Hey! I fucked up!

    I was never very good with geography.  There are many nights when I'm on my way home from the office and I forget what street I live on and even what my house looks like.  Luckily, my wife is always out front, waving me down or hurling rocks at my Hummer as I drive past.

    So when I confused a suburb of Istanbul with Baghdad... Well, it wasn't a surprise to her or my staff!  Heh-heh-heh!

    But, seriously, the fault with the picture screw up is entirely mine.  I spent most of the trip to Iraq drunk as a skunk.  I was scared shitless, what with the mortar shells being lobbed at us and the roadside bombs and car bombs going off at all hours of the night and day.  And I never left the Baghdad airport!  Imagine what it must be like in some of those outlying neighborhoods where they're finding 30 guys a day with their noggins chopped off!  Hey, I've been to South Central one time but I never saw anybody missing a head.

    I was digging through the box of photos last night looking for one that really is Baghdad, but all I kept finding were shots of people with shots through the back of their skulls.

    Let me keep digging and see if I can come up with one that shows just how peaceful Baghdad is these days, what with all the great projects Halliburton is wrapping up around town.  When I was there, they were just finishing up the build-out on the second Starbuck's.  (The first one is across the street from the new one.)

    Thanks for calling my attention to this blunder. I wish I had been sober when I was over there. I don't know how our fighting men and women do it without booze or drugs, frankly.

    Fuck, I need a drink just thinking about it!

      How lame.

      Proof of more lies from the right.  Is there anything too low for them to do?

      Mr Kaloogian never got my vote before and he wasn't getting it this time.

      This sure made my day as did last weeks news that Ben "the plagiarist" Domenech resignation from the Washington Post blog.  ;)

      Good job AnthonyLA and everyone else.  Thank you.
      I love this site!!
