(She's the Mayor of crazy town.)

It's hard to believe but the reporting surround Bush's "surge" strategy by the media has been even more horrible than usual.

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush plans to withdraw 5,700 troops from Iraq by December and has accepted recommendations on force numbers by the top U.S. commander and diplomat in Iraq, a senior administration official said on Thursday."

That thumping sound you hear is my head against my desk.

Oh, and the President isn't trying to sell his strategy to a "divided" public. As Atrios constantly points out the public universally hates Bush and hates his pet war. Once again the media and beltway elites somehow consider themselves one side of the equation.

In reality their opinion counts for shit. Perhaps when they're offered a last cigarette and a blindfold they'll finally get the picture.

This senior admin's info is different than Gen Petraeus whose info is different than Tony Snow.

I have no doubt all 3 are lying. As maddening as it is for you and me, imagine how bad it is for the military people stuck indefinitely in Iraq.

Civilian Leadership = Scumbag Liars
