Howard Kaloogian is a Republican running for Congress in California. He put up a picture of a peaceful Iraq on his campaign site with the following caption:
Iraq (including Baghdad) is much more calm and stable than what many people believe it to be. But, each day the news media finds any violence occurring in the country and screams and shouts about it – in part because many journalists are opposed to the U.S. effort to fight terrorism.
But it wasn’t Iraq, it was Istanbul, Turkey.
The internet ownage started here. Then he got owned on TV. Then he took down the picture and put up one taken high up from the safety of his hotel room, and got owned some more. As someone who has lived in Turkey for two months, I am deeply offended by the misrepresentation of my mother’s homeland. Howard Kaloogian, with all due respect, you are an esholesheck.
