Bush Trying to Subvert Democracy Again

But this time it's not in the US

From the New York Times:
BAGHDAD, Iraq, March 28 — Senior Shiite politicians said today that the American ambassador has told Shiite officials to inform the Iraqi prime minister that President Bush does not want him to remain the country's leader in the next government.

It is the first time the Americans have directly intervened in the furious debate over the country's top job, the politicians said, and it is inflaming tensions between the Americans and some Shiite leaders.

The ambassador, Zalmay Khalilzad, told the head of the main Shiite political bloc at a meeting last Saturday to pass a "personal message from President Bush" on to the prime minister, Ibrahim al-Jaafari, who the Shiites insist should stay in his post for four more years, said Redha Jowad Taki, a Shiite politician and member of Parliament who was at the meeting.

Ambassador Khalilzad said that President Bush "doesn't want, doesn't support, doesn't accept" Mr. Jaafari to be the next prime minister, according to Mr. Taki, a senior aide to Abdul-Aziz al-Hakim, the head of the Shiite bloc. It was the first "clear and direct message" from the Americans on the issue of the candidate for prime minister, Mr. Taki said.

What about all ths purple fingers? Like the ones that the Rethuglicans held up at Dubya's State of the Union Address only one year ago:

Once again, Bushy replaces those fingers with his favorite one:

Maria, I would venture to say that judging by your sniveling post, you don't give one crap about the Iraqi people and the democratic voting process they all got to partake in. All you can do is show an old screenshot of a video which George W Bush jokingly was doing a "check 1,2,3" test in order to get the camera /audio equipment up-to-par. I am sure little liberal innocent you have NEVER stuck your middle finger up to anyone off or on camera, huh? After all, you're just too better than that, right? Once again, you making moutains out of molehills. Once again, you continually demonstrate your sniveling attitude toward our mission in Iraq. Hey, I think Susan Sarandon needs a sidekick in the upcoming Cindy Sheehan movie she's doing, perhaps you can audition for a part?

Braden, I don't know what color your fingers are but your nose is most assuredly brown from sticking it up Bush's ass.

Maria, your response is the perfect example that you have nothing intelligent to say with the exception of your normal resorting to vulgarity in any response you do manage to muster up in that liberal head of yours. You just can't help yourself, huh?

Anonymous: I hate to burst your bubble, but Kool-Aid drinkers are associated with left-wing kooks. Certainly you can come up with something better than that from UPMC.

And Maria: you're making a big deal out of an old screen test GWB did, but it's OK for Clinton to commit perjury, obstruction of justice, and witness tampering. In fact, to you, he's probably a hero to you. Gee, fancy that.

The Left calls the right Kool-Aid drinkers.
