What Took Them So Long?

Well, it took more than a day but the Washington Post finally noticed that a majority of Iraqi lawmakers have voted to kick US forces out of their country.

Many other outlets are picking up the story as well.

So, now it’s a majority of the Iraqi Parliament, the US House of Representatives, the US Senate, and the people of America against one solitary Chimp.

In other Iraq Parliament news, tempers are flaring.

Iraq’s parliament speaker slapped a fellow Sunni Arab lawmaker on the face today as he was leaving a stormy session in which he accused “three-quarters” of the house’s 275 members of involvement in sectarian violence.

Mahmoud al-Mashhadani has a track record of violent behaviour and is given to making undiplomatic comments about MPS and members of the Shiite-dominated government of Prime Minister Nouri Maliki.

Some MPs have in the past accused him of running the chamber like a coffee shop.
