Hey, I just came from a meeting where they were trying to get some commander, any commander, in the Green Zone, to host Jawn Carri.
Swear to God, the CG is saying, "You can't tell me you ALL have things going on at that time! Come on!"
So, it appears that JF'nK will be coming to the Palace at the Embassy Annex and sitting around sucking up coffee at the Green Bean while we all try to ignore him.
Me, I'm gonna get a picture with him.
Update: So, what do y'all think will happen? You think no one will show up for Kerry, or do you think someone will be pressured into CYA-ing for the good senator, P.R.-wise? John at Op-For is voting for total, Kerry embarrassment. Matt at Blackfive is taking the position that Kerry will come out okay, undoubtedly with the help of a complicit media and some serious cropping should the senator end up dining mostly alone. I think a beer hangs in the balance. Cast your votes.
As for me, I think Kerry will end up embarrassing himself either way. He already has with the brilliant idea to call the troops stoopid, then go visit them, then go sit down with their enemy. Doesn't he just have "President" written all over him? He should have skipped the Iraq stop and gone straight onto Damascus.
