Today's handiwork, courtesy of St. John McCain and Draft Dodgin' Joe:

Gunmen bent on revenge burned mosques and homes in a Sunni enclave of Baghdad on Friday as Iraq's leaders pleaded for calm, a day after the worst bomb attack since the U.S. invasion.

Some 30 people were killed, police said, as suspected Shi'ite militiamen rampaged for hours, untroubled by a curfew enforced in the capital by U.S. and Iraqi forces after bombs killed 202 people in the Shi'ite stronghold of Sadr City.

I still don't personally know anyone stupid enough to think that Jim Baker is going to save the day, but I know they are out there. I took my car to the  body shop today and I picked up the Newsweek cover story with Bush Sr. and his petulant child who persists in smashing the country into a brick wall like it was a Tonka Truck.  The article was such an insufferably smug toeing of the DC cogniscenti line I thought, "this sounds just like Jon Meacham."  And sure enough.

Can't tell you how much I am looking forward to that All war all the time "centrist" (*cough*) McCain/Lieberman ticket in 2008.
