Remember that old commercial–“How do you spell relief?” Well here’s a new version–“How do you spell Iraq?” It’s only a trick question if you’re Tim Russert. Russert spelled Iraq “I-R-A-K” on last night’s edition of NBC Nightly News. Perhaps he was too giddy to report bad poll numbers on the situation in Irak, er, Iraq? Or perhaps he was distracted by the knowledge that the media is playing its desired role in the war quite well.
