Ignoring Reality, Bush Insists Iraq Getting Better "All The Time"

No, I do not jest: Mr. Bush claimed today that Iraq is getting better all the time. Perhaps he can explain this, from AP, along with the U.S. troop death toll taking another leap today:

Two suicide bombers turned a procession of Shiite pilgrims into a blood-drenched stampede Tuesday, killing scores with a first blast and then claiming more lives among fleeing crowds. At least 106 were killed amid a wave of deadly strikes against Shiites heading for a solemn religious ritual.
Hey, Bush must think, it's only "at least" 106 dead, and it's not like they're Bush donors...
