Wearing Out The Welcome

Iraqi prime minister Maliki has rejected key terms of a long term security agreement that would establish U.S. military bases in Iraq indefinitely. At the same time, Moqtada al-Sadr, the militant Shiite leader, has called for a new initiative against U.S. forces. The presence of U.S. troops is a major issue in Iraqi politics, with the majority of Iraqi public opinion wanting troop withdrawals to begin.

This is clearly a setback for Preznit Dumbya, who had wanted the Iraqis to rename Baghdad as "Bushtown" by the end of his term. The Iraqis counter-offered to name a goat farm after him.

i wonder if the dreams of our prez will come true. i think the goat farm would be an honor for him right now, don't you? maybe a mushroom farm somewhere would be appropriate too.
