I was going to post something satirical about Arianna Huffington's address to the 'All Things Cool' Conference funded by the Take Back America.Org folks who marched on Washington D.C. yesterday, but they did such a great job themselves that it would have been overkill. You can not beat Cadillac Commies and Lexus Lefties for the pure fun of self-satire. Dressed to their 'Fabulous Nines' they were going to march and 'Take Back America,' but there was so much great finger food in the VIP tent that they decided to give the streets to the people.
Marches across America, protesting the 6th year of America's War on Islamist Terror drew enough people to pack a phone booth in Custer Park, IL. The Surge is working - stick to Race; you are doing just a bang-up job on that!
In Chicago, pigeons and bag ladies competed with protesters for face-time on Channel 5. The Chicago Police had all their Home Land Security Ninja suits but nothing to do in them.
Because the Surge is working in Iraq, all the Hollywood Revolutionaries could stay and eat the finger food like they were eating the rich.
Meanwhile, Senator John McCain and British P.M. Howard Brown met to discuss the global war on Islamist terror and McCain reported that Al Queda is on the run:
He acknowledged that Britons, along with Americans, were sometimes "frustrated by our lack of progress" in Iraq but insisted the situation had "improved dramatically" in the last year.
Britain has remained the U.S. government's closest ally in Iraq, although its continued military presence there is unpopular at home. It currently has about 4,000 troops stationed in southern Iraq but plans to reduce that to about 2,500 later this year if conditions allow. It has reduced troop levels in the last two years, as its military commitment in Afghanistan has increased.
McCain said he met with the Labor Party prime minister as a senator and as a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, not as a Republican presidential candidate.
He said he admired Brown and appreciated the prime minister's commitment to maintaining the "unique relationship" that exists between the United States and Great Britain.
McCain also applauded Brown's leading efforts on climate change and said he hoped that new global limits on greenhouse gas could be reached with China and India.
The senator was scheduled to meet with opposition Conservative leader David Cameron next before traveling to Paris to meet with pro-American French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
Nick Sarkozy - he's gotta have relatives in Hegewisch! Love that guy!
