A man, a plan, a McCain

McCain is determined to be proved right.

After last weeks claim that all was well in Baghdad, he has gone in. What a guy. So manly and gung ho.

So did he, like he claimed others do, go out for a coffee, go unarmored and unescorted...

Not exactly.

McCain, in armor, with 100 armed soliders around him, 3 blackhawk helicopters and 2 apache helicopters flying above bravely went out. Did I save brave? I mean bold, strong, and a completely safe city, of course.

Now 6 soldiers near Baghdad were not as lucky...I mean safe.

And after he left?

[I]t didn't take the insurgents long to send their reply. Less then 30 minutes after McCain wrapped up, a barrage of half a dozen mortars peppered the boundaries of the Green Zone, where the senators held their press conference.

Way to make a point senator. You really are on the Straight Talk Express...wait April Fools is over! I was sarcastic there.
