call it like it is

This morning's headlines are all about Donald Rumsfeld making an appearance in Baghdad. The adjectives describing his visit include "surprise," "unannounced," and "unscheduled," mirroring the language used for Bush's recent trip to the Green Zone.

Is it really so hard for our "free press" to see that the proper adjectives are "sneaky" or "surreptitious?"

Let's face it, if these clowns thought they could do it, they would ride into town in a chariot on a path strewn with rose petals. The only reason they don't is that they are too cowardly to come by light of day despite their insistence to the rest of us that things are going swimmingly in the land between the rivers.
