Turkey, Baghdad. They all hate us, right?Another lesson of pissed-off liberal bloggers using their way-to-abundant free time to take down GOP candidates:
Howard Kaloogian, one of 12 Republicans running to replace the convicted felon Randy "Duke" Cunningham, posted a photo on his web site recently displaying a "peaceful" Baghdad. Problem is, the photo was of Istanbul, Turkey. It had this caption:
Downtown Baghdad: We took this photo of dowtown [sic] Baghdad while we were in Iraq. Iraq (including Baghdad) is much more calm and stable than what many people believe it to be. But, each day the news media finds any violence occurring in the country and screams and shouts about it -- in part because many journalists are opposed to the U.S. effort to fight terrorism.
Howie is running on an anti-mainstream media campaign, and wanted to show how peaceful Baghdad is these days. Never motivate the bloggers...
