Bush and his cronies are telling us conditions in Iraq are improving, and that nasty liberal media is just concentrating on all the negatives - you know, little things like car bombings, and troop killings, and the fact that water and electrical delivery to the Iraqi people is at lower levels today than before the war.
Yes, things are going swimmingly over there, right? Er, well if you believe The Times of London, maybe not so much:
"The fragile state of the sectarian divide in Iraqi politics was exposed today when a fight broke out in parliament after a mobile phone ringtone played a Shia Muslim chant.
A procedural session of the Iraqi parliament was suspended as Shia and Sunni leaders stormed out to protest the ringtone and the subsequent scuffle, which erupted between the armed bodyguards of the Sunni speaker Mahmoud al-Mashhadani and the hardline Shia politician, Gufran al-Saidi."
