Obama Rejects Iraq Invitation From McCain

What is it with John McCain and strolling through Iraq? Last year McCain went to Iraq and claimed, ““even Paris Hilton could ride a bicycle in a bikini through Anbar province.”

Maybe Paris could move around Iraq in a bikini like above and be safe, but only if she traveled as McCain did, “accompanied by 100 American soldiers, 3 Blackhawk helicopters, and 2 Apache gunships on his stroll through a Baghdad market.” He looked more like this:

I guess I shouldn’t complain. Given the choice of Paris Hilton, John McCain, a bikini, and a bullet proof vest, I’m glad that the wardrobe got distributed as it did.

Now McCain has offered to have Barack Obama join him in Iraq, but he wasn’t very polite in his invitation. MaCain said, “He really has no experience or knowledge or judgment about the issue of Iraq and he has wanted to surrender for a long time.”

Clearly John McCain is as delusional about the meaning of the word “surrender” as he has been about his entire position of supporting this war. Obama turned him down and his campaign issued this statement:

“John McCain’s proposal is nothing more than a political stunt, and we don’t need any more ‘Mission Accomplished’ banners or walks through Baghdad markets to know that Iraq’s leaders have not made the political progress that was the stated purpose of the surge. The American people don’t want any more false promises of progress, they deserve a real debate about a war that has overstretched our military, and cost us thousands of lives and hundreds of billions of dollars without making us safer.”
