Mission: Still Being Accomplished

Bush's surprise visit to Iraq today prompts a couple of thoughts. First, of course, is this: what does it say about the US that its president has to literally sneak into a country. I mean think about it, the president of the most powerful country on the planet HAS TO SNEAK INTO another country? And I'm not talking about secret meetings necessitated by political considerations, I'm talking about SNEAKING INTO A COUNTRY because of concerns for personal safety. Has this EVER happened before to another US president? Ever?

On the bright side, aids traveling with the president did receive some snazzy freebies on the flight over.

Yep, you can keep your peanuts and pillows, it helmets and flak jackets for the BushCorp™ crew.
