Daily Kos: WaPo Editorial Board: Lying BushCo Shills

That's the problem with being a shill -- you'll twist yourself into such a posture of ridiculousness you can't even tell when your head has been firmly tucked into your nether regions. You weren't seeking the light anyway.

I have said it before. I say it again now: The WaPo Editorial Board is nothing but a lying shill group for BushCo on Iraq. No different than the WSJ Ed Board or the Moonie Times. Compare this editorial from Saturday August 13:

But the al Qaeda statement also illustrates the extraordinary importance of completing the constitution as soon as possible: If anything, the importance of finishing as close as possible to the original Aug. 15 deadline is greater this week than last. While a day or two's delay might not be tragic, a much longer one could plunge the country into greater chaos, particularly if the constitution's insurgent opponents begin to feel that their strategy is working. American, European and Arab leaders should, over the next few days, focus all possible effort on persuading, cajoling and arm-twisting the Iraqis into a compromise. The future of Iraqi democracy depends on it.

With their editorial today:

THE DEADLINE for completing a draft of Iraq's new constitution was missed yesterday to the disappointment of Iraqis and American officials who had hoped that Monday would represent another major step toward full Iraqi sovereignty. But the slip in the schedule should not be viewed -- at least at this stage -- as a permanent obstacle on the road to an Oct. 15 referendum, the Dec. 15 national elections and a constitutional government beginning Dec. 31. The negotiators, finding themselves stuck on key issues, did not throw up their hands and quit the process. Instead, they requested, and received from the National Assembly, a one-week extension to produce a final draft of a permanent constitution. The alternatives to a seven-day delay would have been worse.

Here's my question, and what if it is delayed to the 29th? Or September 6th? Or September 13th? Will such delays be "fatal"? Each and every one of these deadlines is as artificial as was the August 15th deadline, you know, the date that the "future of Iraqi democracy depend[ed]" on.

That's the problem with being a shill -- you'll twist yourself into such a posture of ridiculousness you can't even tell when your head has been firmly tucked into your nether regions. You weren't seeking the light anyway.
