The AP Doesn't Get It

From the AP via
Newt Gingrich is taking steps toward a potential presidential bid in 2008 with a book criticizing President Bush's policies on Iraq and a tour of early campaign states.
First, Gingrich didn't write a book "criticizing President Bush on Iraq." He wrote a book, which among numerous other things criticizes the Administration for "underestimating the effect of anti-U.S. propaganda from the Arab" media. Aside from that, maybe the AP forgot there was just an election, which among other things showed that "criticizing President Bush on Iraq" was not a winning strategy.
