More unintentional irony from Newsweek: "How To Get Out Of Iraq"


The image & text above is a teaser on the MSNBC front page (http://www.msnbc.msn.com /).

It links to an article with a title that's somewhat less ironic:

"The Long Goodbye

President Bush offered a plan for staying in Iraq. Here are some suggestions for getting out"

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/5060790/site/newsweek/site/... /

...I formed a mental picture, when I saw it, of Bush sitting in front of a computer typing "How To Get Out Of Iraq" into Google.

Regarding comments that have been made here recently about a "turning of the tide" in Bush coverage, it's pretty well supported by the intro paragraph of the article, in which no punches are pulled and the author proceeds to give "advice" to the leader of the free world, who has demonstrated his inability to solve the problem on his own:

"Lets hope his stump speech improves. On Monday he repeated pretty much the same old points hes made many times beforebeen making for a year now, in factas if hed been on the right track all along. And that leaves those of us who try to stay in touch with reality making some of the same old points we've made before, too. Sorry about that. But for one last time, I hope, lets look at what it actually will take to get us out of Iraq."
