Ladies and gentlemen, your Republican paaaaarty......

"Sen. John McCain strolled briefly through an open-air market in Baghdad today in an effort to prove that Americans are “not getting the full picture” of what’s going on in Iraq.

NBC’s Nightly News provided further details about McCain’s one-hour guided tour. He was accompanied by “100 American soldiers, with three Blackhawk helicopters, and two Apache gunships overhead.” Still photographs provided by the military to NBC News seemed to show McCain wearing a bulletproof vest during his visit."

You know, with that much firepower around me, I'd probably feel pretty safe too.

Unfortunately, the average Iraqi who risks life and limb running out to get a spot of tea doesn't have 100 soldiers around him, Apaches and Blackhawks hovering overhead, or a bulletproof vest to wear.

But, you know, according to McCain, that pesky media's just not showing the real story of how well Bush's war is going.

I once thought John McCain could easily win the election but now I don't think he has a chance he's attached himself to Bush and the War too closely.
