    When the "minders" assigned to the foreign reporters and this guy didn't show up for work, I knew it
    was all over.

    I figure Letterman will be contacting "Baghdad Bob" (as MSaS has been nicknamed) for a standup spot
    shortly. He's been the real comic relief throughout this whole thing.

    Ehehe, gotta hand it to the guy, he's either completely insane or incredibly stupid.

    Getting OT from an allready OT post, Mark, would you be interested in a new website design? I'd be
    willing to do it for you for a small fee.

    That is one thing I can definitely agree with you on during this whole occupation. Those masters of
    misinformation are hilarious, especially their 100% turnout and 100% votes for Saddam a year ago.

    Yeah, it does kind of make any "election trauma" in 2000 we had look a little weak by comparison,
    huh? FWIW, I saw reports of Arabs in other countries amazed by the response of the Iraqi people to
    their liberation from Saddam's regime. They were apparently shocked that there really WASN'T near
    total support for Saddam. Go figure!

    Mark,

    The Arabs in Jordan and Syria were very disallusioned by Al Jazeera and "Baghdad Bob" the
    Information Minister. They believed the crap! When American Marines actually showed up in the
    square and that young Marine did the "in yer face" with the American flag on the statue it was a
    very shocking thing. BTW, that flag incident was intended for Baghdad Bob to essentially say,
    "deny us being here now bozo". It wasn't intended to show rascally American imperialism.

    curious as to your source of just what that 'flag incedent' was *meant* to do. i didn't know you
    were so well informed ( considering that wasn't part of the interview with the person who did it),
    or are you just reading whatever fits your world view into it?

    She told me last night that she'd let you buy her lobster, and then meet me in the motel
    room at 11:30.

    Granted it's just what I heard from work. I didn't see an interview where the kid actually said it.
    It explained to me why he stuck it on the statue's face.

    I did a google on this and found you guys are right. He was carried away by the moment.My bad. I
    stand corrected.

    I was wrong about the incIdent. I was passing along something I heard and it fit with what I thought
    the symbolism meant. I google'd it and found out that it wasn't part of the interview. My bad.

    Now quit humping my leg.

    I mean that with the utmost mtb love and respect.
