Friday Funnies

Here's a laugh for the end of the week. Reports are coming out of Iraq that the U.S. Military has been paying Iraqi newspapers to run favorable articles about the war and rebuilding efforts. Now this is hardly a new tactic for the Bush Administration, which made headlines early this year for paying commentator Armstrong Williams to promote government policies, as well as produced numerous public-relations releases masquerading as news. So, where's the punchline?

What's funny is the White House's reaction -- White House spokesman Scott McClelland stated that the Administration is "very concerned." Yeah, they're concerned that they've been caught yet again. Yes, we're witnessing the rebirth of the Iraqi Information Minister, except that he's on our payroll now. Now I call THAT a big joke.
