« On Bolton, The Nuclear Option and The Perception Of Power - Part VI | Main | RIP Civil Rights Activist Jean O'Leary »

Was a shock to read this in my Dallas Morning News. Not the article;that it was printed.

Ok, the article also.

Waist deep in the Big Muddy ...

The most dangerous lies are the ones you tell yourself ...

-- Rick Robinson

OK. I've lost track. Are we allowed yet to say quagmire? Has this sociopathic foreign policy got any critics in the Senate who are willing to stop being so polite, standing in the hallowed halls and taking personal privilege to say: "President Bush, I don't believe you. You're the worst liar we've had in the Presidency since Richard Nixon, and I don't believe you. And every time I think about the men and women being flown secretly into Dover in their "transfer tubes," I think of what Mr. Cheney once said on this floor. 'Fuck you,' Mr. President. Fuck you very much."

C'mon. Just one Senator?

..and the damn fool said to move on.

By the way, what's this about? From the WaPo article you reference:

Rep. Curt Weldon (R-Pa.), who joined Biden for part of the trip, said Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and others are misleading Americans about the number of functional Iraqi troops and warned the president to pay more attention to shutting off Syrian and Iranian assistance to the insurgency. "We don't want to raise the expectations of the American people prematurely," he said.

Meanwhile, Weldon has a new book coming out with Regnery, which according to Congressional Quarterly:

details intelligence secrets “Ali” has provided and warns that Iran, not al Qaeda, is the United States’ biggest enemy, according to the book’s description on Amazon.com....

In the book, Weldon exposes warnings from his source that Iran will attack America next; that Iran, not al Qaeda, is actually the nexus of Islamic terrorism; and that Iran has an advanced nuclear program.

So where's Weldon's head at, here? Is he an ally for truth in Iraq? Or a nutbar selling the next war with Iran?

(Answer: nutbar.)

Yep. Nutbar. Can't help but think Bolton's part of the cabal. But where are the troops coming from?

Troops? We're going to do it all from the air. We're going to drop bales of school vouchers on them, convert their petrodollars to block grants, and eventually they'll wither on the vine. Or something like that.

Jim VandeHei is the man. I especially liked this article from January, with its collection of Harry Reid zingers.

Nutbar, left on the dashboard with the windows rolled up on a hot summer day.
