Quoth the Condi: Forever War!

Amused Muse is not amused:

[Condoleeza Rice] was heckled by protesters and faced criticism from Muslim leaders hand-selected to meet with her by the Foreign Office during a visit here, the district Mr. Straw represents in Parliament. He visited Ms. Rice's hometown, Birmingham, Ala., in October. About 250 protesters ringing Blackburn's City Hall shouted "Shame on you" as the two arrived. Through the din, Ms. Rice looked off into the distance and spotted a handful of people, many holding shopping bags, who had stopped to gawk.

She pointed them out to Mr. Straw, and the two of them waved enthusiastically. Later, Mr. Straw said this gathering of "people who agree with the visit" was "at least as large as the protesters."

No doubt about it--this war against reality is going to be a long one. Well, at least we have these brave souls to make us proud and give us hope. And a big thank you to the good people of England. Donny George is my hero, too.

And you don't find the NYT account amusing?

My nephew narrowly missed going to Iraq, and was honorably discharged in time due to health issues--no, not amusing. Not this. That Rice/Straw would so contort themselves for a paltry fantasy? Hardly. It scares me.
