Ron Coleman’s pretty good blog

Well, it takes a village, after all

Improper colonial deference to Baroness Clinton and the Marquess of Levin:

Iraq’s beleaguered prime minister on Sunday lashed out at Democrats who have called for his ouster, saying Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Carl Levin need to “come to their senses.”Nouri al-Maliki, who is fighting to hold his government together, issued a series of stinging ripostes against a variety of foreign officials who recently have spoken negatively about his leadership. But those directed at Democrats Clinton, of New York, and Levin, of Michigan, were the most strident.

“There are American officials who consider Iraq as if it were one of their villages, for example Hillary Clinton and Carl Levin. They should come to their senses,” al-Maliki said at a news conference.

Good for him. That certainly adds an interesting dynamic, wouldn’t you say? Ironic, quite, yes. Good show.

UPDATE:  “It takes a village… idiot.”
