Bush calls for immediate Iraq withdrawal

President Bush last night fired most of his top advisors and announced he would immediately pull U.S. forces out of Iraq. The Wshington Post quotes the President:
"I don't know how I ever let myself be talked into it," he said. "There were no WMDs, just a bunch of neocon talking points. They took me for quite a ride, but they're gone now.

"We will be withdrawing all of our troops as soon as physically possible and closing the Guantanamo Bay detention center, as well as all U.S. bases in Iraq. I will personally devote the remainder of my term to making restitution to the people of Iraq for the destruction we caused in their country.

"Oh, and Gonzales and Rove? I don't know what they were trying to pull with that U.S. attorney thing, but it wasn't right. They're history. "
If only. Happy April Fool's Day.

In the real news: U.S. Toll in March Is Twice Iraq Forces. Bush: Gonzales 'Honorable and Honest'.

And I applaud this courageous and trenchant satire, the latest salvo in a battle against Bush that you have fought virtually alone. I believe you were the first to question the presence of WMDs in Iraq, and Letter from Here has scooped the major new outlets many times since. I hope you will self-publish BEATING THE BUSHES--a collection of your most incisive pieces--and price it low so that it finds its way into as many hands as possible. I promise to purchase a copy and send it to the White House, since I am generlly up late and don't mind vistors after midnight.

Happy April Fools Day to you too.
