As to what kind of Newsweek cover gets published.
From 2006 & 2007. "Denial." "They hate us." "We're losing." Pretty bleak stuff, but I guess boooshitler deserved it, eh.
From 2008, 2009, 2010. "Recession over." "We're all socialists." "Victory at Last."
Victory at last?? Huh? At least, one of the lap dogs used the word "victory," even if the actual story is dubious, uninspired and can't help but take a parting pot shot at Abu Ghraib. The Newsweek story is here.
Oh. Wait. Apparently Newsweek never heard that "Victory in Iraq Day" was declared already - back 2008.
But I guess it all depends upon who's boots you want to lick as to how selective your memory is...
