Column: Politics: tired of war, race? Think of sex
BEVERLY HILLS -- Happy Sunday, everybody, and God bless America.
Hillary Clinton's poll numbers rose Friday, which boosted the chances of her presidential run. What a relief. After fourteen years of Bush and War and Obama and Race, Americans are overjoyed at the prospect of going back to discussing what is and isn't sex with the Clintons.
The White House refused to take sides in Iraq's civil war Thursday as government troops fell back again. The next day the advance on Baghdad miraculously halted. It turns out all those abandoned U.S. military vehicles used by al-Qaeda rebels were made by General Motors.
President Obama signaled Thursday that the United States wants the Iraq parliament to get rid of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. You know how it is. Nouri al-Maliki's mistress tape recorded him asking her not to invite any black guys to the fall of Baghdad, and now he must go.
President Obama addressed reporters Thursday to announce he will not send U.S. combat troops into Iraq to help government Shiite troops and he won't order U.S. warplanes to attack the Sunni army. He sincerely hates war. People keep declaring it in the middle of his backswing.
President Obama sent three hundred U.S. military advisors into Baghdad to whip the Iraq forces into shape as the al-Qaeda's army approached the city. Americans had the same reaction when they heard he sent three hundred soldiers. Are they going to Baghdad or Sparta?
