New Iraq Direction

Shortly after my post about RightNation last week, Brandon emailed me a note to check out Free Republic. I’d heard of FR before, but never really checked it out. I got a really good chuckle this morning when I hopped over there and found this headline: Bush Proposes Sending Transformers™ to Iraq:

July 17, 2007 – Increasingly frustrated by the Iraqi government’s failure to meet a series of defined benchmarks, President George W. Bush today proposed sending a group of giant robots known as the Transformers™ to Iraq.

Aides to the president were vague as to when Mr. Bush arrived at his new Transformers™ strategy. But sources say that he devised the plan last week, shortly after a surprise visit to a multiplex in Bethesda, Md.

It links to a Newsweek satire piece, which is pretty enjoyable to someone like myself who really enjoys a well-written piece of satire. We all owe Brandon a big thanks for directing me towards FR.

All together now: “THANKS BRANDON!”
