Blatant photo-op, blatant photo-op, blatant photo-op
So W's ratings in the polls are way, way down. What does he do about it? Why, he takes a trip to Iraq, of course. What else would ya do? And then he lands himself on the cover of every daily newspaper in the country with the new Iraqi PM. And his ratings are bumped up a notch. Could this possibly have anything at all to do with the fact that there are primary elections in several key districts in the south this week? Noooooooo, course not. Why would you think that?
