Fun With Dick and George - Column Left

"Fun With Dick and George"

by Douglas O'Rourke

LOS ANGELES, April 5, 2004 ( ) -- It's times like these that make you wish they'd developed a reality-based version of the Bush Presidency.

Just listen to L. Paul Bremer, if you can hear him over the small arms fire.

Our glorious Neocon-led victory in Iraq is packaged for the world by Mr. Bremer's Coalition Provisional Authority infoganda team of loyal right-wing retainers. They called the media's honest news coverage of Iraq "extraordinarily one-sided," with its focus on dramatic, bloody events. Ms. Rend Rahim, Representative of the Iraqi Governing Council (IGC) to the United States, said, "the reality is nothing like what you see on television."

She's absolutely right...
