Feel-Good Real Reality TV!

All the big TV networks are carrying live the jubilation in Baghdad, especially the attempt to bring down a bronze statue of the Butcher of Baghdad. I understand, too, that the scenes are being broadcast around the world, even in some Arab countries.

There are feel-good movies. And there's Reality TV. But this is feel-good real reality TV, the likes of which we seldom see.

There! The statue has been pulled down!

Bravo! To our marines, soldiers, sailors, airmen, and special ops forces! Bravo! This is a great symbol of what you have been fighting for. Bravo!

And here's a still-image sequence of the toppling (with sarcastic commentary).

P.S. Hey, Mike Farrell, Ed Asner, Martin Sheen, Janeane Garofalo, and Susan Sarandon: up yours!

Update! Here it is:
