THE INDEPENDENT LAYS AN EGG....I promised myself I wasn't going to comment on George Bush's Thanksgiving Day visit to Iraq. I just didn't have anything nonobvious to say.

But take a look at this headline from the Independent. I mean, I don't like Bush either, and I have no doubt that PR played a major role in this whole episode, and I know the Independent is both lefty and anti-war and I know that British newspapers aren't as sober as American ones. I know.

But honestly, what were they thinking? As the cover of Counterpunch or some Bay Area alt weekly, sure. But on the front page of an allegedly serious broadsheet?

Time to grow up, lads.
