So Donald Rumsfeld dropped in on the new Iraqi government today, in a surprise visit where he counseled them about how to run their country. His visit was punctuated with such sage advice as:

“Anything that would delay that or disrupt [the organization of the government] as a result of turbulence or incompetence or corruption in government would be unfortunate.”

Thank you, Rummy! I’m so glad my tax dollars are paying to fly you around the world and offer advice even a ten-year-old could grasp. I’m sure the Iraqi leaders are most grateful too.
