Freudian Slip?

Thought this interesting nugget got lost in all the other Iraq news...

President Bush said this to CNN's Wolf Blitzer in an interview that aired Sunday:
"I like to tell people when the final history is written on Iran — Iraq — it will look like just a comma because there is — my point is, there’s a strong will for democracy, these people want a unity government, the unity government’s functioning.”

When this exchange was mentioned, everyone seemed to focus on the odious 'comma' comment, rather than the interesting Freudian slip with the word 'Iran' in there before immediately catching himself and saying 'Iraq'. Gee, I wonder what's on Georgie's mind?

I've said it before, but Democrats really should be making it clear that war with Iran IS on the ballot this November in the form of every Republican candidate. The President wants this war bad, and the Republicans will go along with whatever he wants to do. We need a Congress that won't let Bush drive us over the cliff. Third time is not the charm here.

Finally, Juan Cole was on Democracy Now on Monday and gave a very thorough and balanced take on the Iranian situation. It was incredibly informative. I highly recommend reading the transcript and just listening in general.
