Yeah, but can she blog?

Jessica Simpson's got her daisy dukes all in a bunch - and rightly so - because the footage of the not-so-nice part of her visit to Iraq were cut out by ABC during her visit to the war-torn country.

Simpson and beefcake hubby Nick Lachey recently visited Iraq to perform for the troops.

Must. Not. Make. Joke.

The footage that didn't fit into ABC's squeaky-clean-kumbaya image it was trying to project with its variety special (Jessica as the new Bob Hope?) got "mysteriously misplaced."

Now, I wouldn't jump to brand Jessica as the newest conspiracy theorist, but I gotta hand it to her when she says:

It was unbelievable. They didn't show a lot of what really went on with the enemy attacks and the shelling. There was so much stuff that went on and somehow the tapes got mysteriously misplaced. It put everything in perspective for me. It really did teach me the definition of sacrifice. I can't even fathom being out there right now. I was ready to come home.

So are they, Jess. So are they.

For some reason, showing the troops getting shelled isn't "honoring" their sacrifice, according to the network suits.

I'd hate Jessica less if she'd make a bigger deal about this.

Anyway, neat blog.
