Bush has Thanksgiving dinner in Baghdad
I'm seriously pretty impressed that Bush went to Baghdad and had dinner with at least some of the troops there. I was particularly impressed at seeing the video this morning and how "unstaged" it looked. It was right in all the ways the USS Lincoln appearance wasn't.

Mind you, I still think he's the worst thing that's happened to the country since at least Nixon, but he gets points for doing the right thing this time.

Addendum: And let's not forget that four years ago, Bill Clinton went to Kosovo for Thanksgiving with the troops only five months after "the end of major combat operations" there and not only had dinner with the troops, but met with local people and was heartily cheered.
