Outrage Alert: Iraqi Prime Minister Pulls a Durbin
We were just watching the joint Bush/Jaafari presser and, boy, those Iraqis are fast learners! A brand new democracy and their reporters are already pissing off the President by asking more than one question a piece:
BUSH: You've picked up a good American trick, which is to ask two questions. (Laughter.) Congratulations.Another little trick they've picked up? Comparing Bush to Hitler.
PRIME MINISTER JAAFARI: [W]e thought that there is a Marshall project after the Second World War that contributed -- the U.S. contributed in that and in the Truman's government when they presented assistance to the German people. German people had selected Hitler in a democratic process that had a 98 percent result, however, we are quite happy with this hospitality of the U.S. So Germany was able to work.Sean Hannity is scheduled to call for Jaafari's apology at 3.— WONKETTE
