2. After offering to “personally pay for every member of the Westboro Baptist Church to fly to Iraq,” Hills received plenty of praise.

6. Well, the challenge was heard. And accepted.

We accepted! Whence tickets? @PhilCooke: An offer to fly WBC members 2 Iraq 2 protest. Sounds like good idea to me:

8. WBC was also quick to confirm that its members have indeed been to Iraq before:

Ironically, @adamhillscomedy, we have picketed in Iraq before. Google it. #toldya cc: @TheLastLeg @kiis1065
