Wow Part II

And the guys over at The Corner actually manage to outdue WaPo:

In another sign of how political discourse has degenerated into spin and sound bite, the reigning narrative is that Obama’s trip to Iraq was a big success — and a problem for McCain — because Obama’s 16 month withdrawal timetable was vindicated by al- Maliki.  Today’s Washington Post editorial notes that, in fact, neither al-Maliki nor Gen. Petraeus support Obama’s plan and other Iraqi leaders are strongly critical.

That’s what many of us thought we heard — but once a narrative has been set everyone seems to run with it, even if they know it’s not true. Do facts matter anymore?

Sweet mother of God! And it’s not even K-Lo! Anyway, once again, here are the words of Prime Minister Maliki:

 U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama talks about 16 months. That, we think, would be the right timeframe for a withdrawal, with the possibility of slight changes.

He mentions Obama by fucking name! As a not so wise man once said, do facts matter anymore?

But on the other hand, maybe I was wrong, and the “pretend it never happened” crowd has the advantage on the right.
