Dukakis In Baghdad?

Here’s a picture of John Wayne McCain “walking freely” in Baghdad.

Oh … and he was also accompanied by 100 soldiers, 3 Blackhawk and 2 Apache helicopters. Think Progress has it all here.

But hey, it’s all good! Lindsey Graham bought 5 rugs for 5 bucks. Of course, he got screwed in the deal. They would’ve given him the rugs for free just to get his ass out of their market as quickly as possible. Graham misunderstood the vendor’s last words to him as “Thanks!” In fact, the literal Arabic interpretation was “Thanks for making us targets!”

But the quote of the day goes to NBC’s Tom Aspell who apparently has grown a set and wasn’t biting on McCain’s PR trip. Aspell said that with the level of protection McCain had: “even Paris Hilton could ride a bicycle in a bikini through Anbar province.”

ONE QUESTION – Why the fuck are we paying and diverting resources so McCain could make a PR trip to Baghdad?
