The Next Logical Step in White House Propaganda Strategy

[Click on the images above to see General Petraeus' original (left) and Cleek's brilliant take on it (right).]
The Onion takes what is, sadly, perhaps only a semi-fantastic look at what might be the next step in propaganda tactics for the Bush White House as it tries to put lipstick on the pig that is the Iraq War: the whole-cloth manufacture of a country that we have invaded and where everything is going - as entertainment personality Ann Coulter put it - "swimmingly." Really, with the pathetic dilution of benchmarks for progress, the questionable credibility of General David Petraeus' report on the effectiveness of troop escalations, and the starry-eyed bait and switch that is the plan for troop "reductions", it's probably just a matter of time.
