Warning - Bypass this post if you don't want to be discouraged.
Forgot about the hundreds, to thousands of U.S. Soldiers and Iraqi citizens being killed and injured on a daily basis. Ignore the Bush Administration's treatment of the soldiers when they return home for care.
The First Lady of the United States, in an interview with Larry King, has decried that, it is not the failure of the President and his administration that is a bummer when it comes to Iraq, rather it is the fault of the media for bringing an isolated moment of misery to us.
"And many parts of Iraq are stable ahh..now. But, of course, what we see on television is the one bombing a day that discourages everybody."
As Think Progress reported, "According to the latest Brookings Institution Iraq Index, as of November 2006, there were approximately 185 insurgent and militia attacks every day."
So, beginning today, and on-going, based on the available news, The Garlic will issue the official downer from the East Wing - The Laura Bush Bummer Bombing-of-the-Day.
