Turn that light out!

Roy Edroso on spinning the effect of Samarra:

ALL IS WELL! We seem to be getting lots of panicky Don't Panic messages about Iraq these days. The authors of these messages curse liberals and the media, as usual, but increasingly include on their shit list the American people as a body.

Of course, like Vietnam, the idea (it IS only an idea and not reality, after all) that the US is failing/has failed in its recently stated mission to avert civil-war in Iraq, is all the fault of damned liberals. Heh, indeed.

Tim Dunlop has a post, along similar lines, but involving everyones favourite tight-rope walking act, Fox News.
