Crediting Wonkette

As I MUST. She’s got the right take on Wolfowitz’s testimony yesterday:

Paul Wolfowitz fesses up on why Iraq isn’t going so well: “We had a plan that assumed we’d have basically more stable security conditions than we’ve encountered.”

Among those assumptions: That Iraq was a magical country, where lollipops grew on trees and the clouds were made of marshmallows! With gumdrop mountains and fruit-punch rivers and houses made of gingerbread!


P.S. Homer Simpson did say, “Oh look at me !!! I’m making people happy! I’m the magical man from happy land, with a gumdrop house on lollipop lane! Oh by the way … I was being sarcastic.” But I don’t think Homer every talked about ***-******* (regular Wonkette readers will know what each asterisk stands for. Childless couples unfamiliar with the procreative process should probably not try to figure it out.)
