City Paper is not for tourists
Sunday’s Washington Post had a hilarious Iraq editorial.
Even the headline is laugh-out-loud funny: “The Iraqi Upturn: Don’t look now, but the U.S.-backed government and army may be winning the war.“
And the chuckles keep coming! Someday, humorologists will regard yesterday’s piece as the Post’s most knee-slapper-friendly editorial since the one in 2003 headlined “Irrefutable” — that was written a day after Colin Powell’s guffawish U.N. routine about weapons of mass destruction.
All these years later, it’s still hard to keep a straight face while reading all those Powell punchlines.
Sunday’s satire has inspired over 400 comments on the Post’s website already. Many of those are really funny.
