The Thursday ‘BushWhack’ing

  • Goodbye Mr. Pavarotti – you will be missed…
  • Thoughts and condolences to the friends and family of Rep. Paul Gillmor (r-OH), who was found dead in his DC apartment yesterday…
  • A commission of retired senior U.S. military officers prepared a report that shows Iraq's army will not be able to take over internal security from US forces within the next 12 to 18 months (big shock isn’t it?) Oh… and they “cannot yet meaningfully contribute to denying terrorists safe haven.” (Bush(whacked) Administration backpedaling on benchmarks in 5, 4, 3, and there we go…)
  • The saga of Larry Craig – aww who cares anymore…
  • Perusing the NIE report I came across what has to be the best quote from it; “If a bullet went through the back of the head, it’s sectarian. If it went through the front, it’s criminal.” (Nice…)
  • It’s officially official: Fred Thompson is running for president. (And his announcement was met with mass indifference as everyone who wasn’t living in a bubble already knew this. While his campaign was electric months ago, its leveled off dramatically in the last few weeks and he isn’t viewed as a gop savior anymore, so it should be interesting to see what effect, if any, his entrance has into the race; stay tuned)
  • And have we mentioned? That Sen. Edward Kennedy cast his 15,000th vote in early August? This is something that has only been done twice before by Senators Strom “Methuselah” Thurmond and Robert “Methuselah Lite” Byrd… it’s not news; it’s the Washington Post…

Gee, retired military officers? How much will they know about the situation in Iraq? Far more than the commanding generals in Iraq, right? Because it agrees with your defeatist prejudices, right?

Well Fetiche... I never said that they knew more about the situation in Iraq, I posted what they reported.

Here's an offer; how about you don't put words in my mouth and I won't call you a conservative lemming...
