We Love Dry Humor

And Mathew Yglesias has got a good bit of it on offer here:

Karzai, who only lives in Afghanistan and runs its government, calls Iran “a helper.” Bush, though, says he’s got it wrong.

Me thinks Karzai went to the Camp David (for some reason every time I hear this name I cannot help but remember the classic line from As Good As It Gets when Jack Nicholson references it while accosting his neighbor) armed with the thorny Iran issue not so much to get Bush to cuddle up to Ahmadinezhad as much as for political consumption back home and to show some spine and independence of thought and action. Here, it does not take very long to realize the importance of precisely that.
