This guy provided a great amount of comic relief to the world for the first two-plus weeks of the war in Iraq. We all owe him a debt for that. I found myself tuning into the daily press meetings. Classic stuff.
It's a shame he's fled the country-- he could have had a future in entertainment. What a comic straight man! For those of you that miss his daily rantings, word is he keeps you (mis)informed right from his own blog.
