The Spinners Cast Their Versions of the Vote in Iraq (washingtonpost.com)

Good overview of the media coverage on the Iraqi vote by Howard Kurtz in the Washington Post. The administration is masterful at spin and were out in full force. I actually flipped back and forth from Al Franken, who was nearly choked up with joy on behalf of the troops (who he had just visited last month with the USO) getting to this pivotal point, to Rush Limbaugh, raving about the liberal media being angry at this incredible success, saying the liberals had been hoping for a huge debacle there because they hate Bush so much, saying that liberals were pro Bin Laden and pro Insurgents just because they want Bush to fail. It was frightening what he was saying, if he really truly believes it. Because it means he really is stark raving mad.
