The AP division of the DNC

I had somehow missed this but have to admit that I'm stunned. This is purportedly an AP "news" article but reads like a DNC response press release. Read the whole thing, but here's how it starts to give you an idea how over the top this article is (this is NOT a parady, this is real):

President Bush's depiction of Iraqi security forces as "helping to turn the tide" is difficult to square with persistent setbacks in handing control of the country back to its own people.

His suggestion that Americans are solidly behind the mission also understates opposition at home, and his hard sell on the rising quality of Iraqi forces overlooks complexities on the ground.

Bush on Wednesday declared the Iraqi army and police forces are "increasingly taking the lead in the fight against the terrorists," even as recruits patrol Iraq's most violent cities barely three months after learning how to use weapons and police forces struggle to get officers to come to work.
