The good news from Iraq these days is that one knows the day before what will be the news from Iraq tomorrow. A majority of people in Iraq are Shiites and a minority are Sunni Muslims. Under Saddam Hussein, the Sunnis ran Iraq. Now, that he is gone, Shiites are making up for lost time with discrimination against Sunnis, including arresting Sunni political leaders. So, one can daily expect the following:
Yesterday in Baghdad, 67 dead and 87 wounded in a Shiite marketplace. Later in the day, a suicide bomber wearing a vest blew himself up and murdered 17 Shiites and wounded a few dozen. We can expect tomorrow that suicide bomber will blow himself up in a Sunni marketplace area.
And, so on, and so on, and so on. Will this madness ever end?

Ted had some words to say to the American people after his wonderful loving feast with the people of Indiana.
“I was the best debater at Princeton and now I will venture out into the new world of post primaries. I do love everyone in Indiana, I love my wife Heidi, I love my two darling daughters who have been part of the great adventure for the past seven months. I want everyone to remember Ronald Reagan, the man who ended the Soviet Union, I want everyone to remember Ronald Reagan who made us once again a Great Nation. I love the Constitution, and have worked so hard the past seven months protecting the Constitution from the illegal immigrant from Kenya who wants to destroy it.
I know more about the Constitution than anyone who has been running for president, I went to Princeton, and Donald went to some second rate college. Frankly, I am a bit disappointed that Republicans selected a sexual philanderer and bully and loud mouth jerk over a Princeton intellectual who knows more than anyone about the Constitution. So, what now for the most intelligent person in the Republican Party? I do know that Donald has insulted my wife, he has insulted my father, but I am a Princeton man and am ready to forget the past and stand side by side with Donald as his running mate come November! And, Donald, remember that I am an immigrant, I love Israel, and I am an Hispanic!”
