With all the news focused on the economy and the Presidents speech tonight, you may have missed the big news from Iraq:
The country that was once on the brink of civil war,
The country that defeatist Democrats like Harry Reid wrote off as lost,
The country that Senator Joe Biden wanted to divide into three ethnic-based regions (video from September 8, 2008Biden brags: My plan to partition Iraq is working.)
That same country UNITED PEACEFULLY today to overwhelmingly pass a Provincial Election Law that will allow new elections to take place between now and January 31, 2009. The law will also give Iraqis more freedom in choosing their representatives.
President Bush congratulated the Iraqi Parliament for reaching this milestone in becoming a self-sustained democracy (Transcript)
Today's action demonstrates the ability of Iraq's leaders to work together for the good of the Iraqi people and represents further progress on political reconciliation. I congratulate the members of the Iraqi Council of Representatives for coming together to pass this significant legislation.
In other news, President Bush discussed free trade with Western Hemisphere leaders today at the Council of the Americas in New York City. (Transcript) and met with President Tony Saca of El Salvador (Transcript)
The President returned to the White House this afternoon where he will deliver a televised statement on the economy tonight at 9pm EST.
Republican Vice Presidential Nominee Gov. Sarah Palin was also in New York City today meeting with the leaders of Iraq, Pakistan, India and the Ukraine.
Enjoy your visit to Sanity Island

THANK YOU for both the photos and the reminder about Iraq’s POLITICAL progress . . . The changes in Iraq over the last 5 years have been nothing short of MIRACULOUS — our visionary President and his courageous troops deserve the world’s eternal gratitude!
[Prayers up for the President — may the good Lord open the ears, eyes and hearts of those listening to his speech tonight!]

It is just me or is a certain frowny person missing from these Sarah Palin photos? :-(
I think she has a GREAT designer and excellent hairstylist...great makeup and just a stunning look.
Are you asking ...
I've been wondering that too. He's been absent in the last few batches of photos I've seen. Maybe he's casting his frowniness on that punk that hacked Sarah's email :)
LMAO!! I can’t blame the guy—I was looking in that area too ;)
Just saw Sarah on with Katie Corrupt - Katie can't hold a tiny thin candle to Sarah!!!
P.S. Katie's makeup artist needs to be fired! Those EYES...yuck!!!!
I read that Sarah shops at an upscale consignment store for some of her outfits (and for her girls too). She doesn’t have a lot of money to spend on clothes, but she always looks fabulous.
I attended the rally in Media Pa on Monday. She was great.
