Tonight's Big Speech: Iraq Who?

George W. Bush's State of the Union speech tonight is certain to include his usual litany of delusions in support of the larger delusion that history will vindicate his awful domestic and foreign policies. I expect his mentions of Iraq will be few and vaporous, in keeping with the current effort to disappear that war -- without, of course, meaningfully reducing the troop presence let alone decreasing the billions of dollars poured in.

He certainly won't dwell on untidy realities like the deaths of five more US soldiers this very day.
