I keep up on current events and rarely does a political cartoon go over my head, but can someone explain this one from the SJ-R today:
I know who Baghdad Bob was. I know who Harry Reid is. I know Harry Reid said we've lost in Iraq (and most Americans agree, by the way) but , huh? Baghdad Bob was a propagandist spouting obvious fantastical untruths that no one believed. Sort of like the Bush administration's pretend victory rhetoric. Ironically, this cartoon points up the opposite of what I think it might be trying to convey. I actually think of ol' Baghdad Bob whenever I here the conservatives talk about some magical "victory" being just around the corner if we only add more troops and spend a few trillion more dollars.
