Hey Bush Bloggers - you "won" the round - what are you going to do next?

I've been blogging my reaction to the latest GOP dirty parliamentary trick at the Detroit News blog here and here. In reading over the Bush blog corps glee over this Phyrric victory, I'm struck by the irony of this statement made by their ringleader.
(Murtha's statement that U.S. troops are magnets for insurgent attacks is demonstrably untrue -- in fact, those attacks are now almost always against Iraqis, civilian or military or police, and this fact is making the insurgents increasingly unpopular).
And Glenn knows this because he spent so much time in Anbar province as Murtha recently did? Perhaps Bush has loaned him Air Force One so he can make secret night time reconnaisance runs? One wonders how he can speak with such bloody certainty.

But it gave me an idea. I've given up on suggesting the keyboard warriors go fight the cursed war themselves. According to them, it's going so swimmingly there's hardly a need for more soldiers. Besides how many of them are even fit enough to be useful?

However, there is still a way for them to help out the cause. No one can dispute that somewhere between 40 to 60 percent of the Iraqis are jobless. Since they can't start up manufacturing industries without an infrastructure that provides reliable water and electricity, the war bloggers could do their part by creating a tourism industry for them.

So how about it Bush bloggers and I think Glenn should lead the way on this. Since they're not really targeting Americans and the insurgents are so unpopular, I'm sure the civilian population would welcome an influx of US touro dollars with sweets and roses. How about all these "true believers" take their next family vacation in Baghdad or Fallujah instead of Disney World or the beach. I know there's no rides or cabana bars there but it's the least they can do to support our troops.

Show up in person and show them that you believe we are winning. Check out all that good news that doesn't make it to the "liberal press," right up close in person. If you can afford to throw a party at the Rainbow Room, you can afford a suite at the Palestine hotel, I'm sure. I'll be looking forward to the live blogging of your day trips to Anbar.
