Boyz in the Hood

Where the fuck does Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman live that he thinks Baghdad is "relaxed" and more stable than three years ago? In the New York Times Bodman said, "The situation seems far more stable than when I was here two or three years ago," he said in an interview in the fortified Green Zone. "The security seems better, people are more relaxed. There is an optimism, at least among the people I talked to."

This of course flies in the face of the recently returned Gil Gutknecht (R-MN), who as recently as last month castigate those who painted the war as a quagmire, but just this week said, "Baghdad is worse today than it was three years ago." Like some other notable conservatives, he seems to be coming around to the fact that he's been had by Bush and company. "We learned it's not safe to go anywhere outside of the Green Zone any part of the day."

Maybe he should check out Bodman's hood...
