Gin Rummysfeld.


Did any of you see Donald Rumsfeld in front of the Senatorial hearing? I am sure you may have heard some of the fireworks from it.

Wow, Rumsfeld is a really cool guy. Most people would probably blow up when confronted with what Teddy "Chappaquiddick" Kennedy and Robert "KKK" Byrd threw at him. At least TK offered substantive (though very wrong-headed) criticism while Byrd's major accomplishment was to complain about DR's "sneer".

The most interesting part was when TK asked Secretary Rumsfeld when he was going to resign. Sec. Rumsfeld informed the senator that he [Sec. Rumsfeld] offered his resignation twice but President Bush declined to accept it both times. I do not recall hearing of a retort from the senator on this.

Senator Kennedy's central contention is that Iraq is a huge Vietnamish mess. It would be interesting to figure out how he comes to this conclusion. I get the feeling that many on the left think Afghanistan and Iraq are both terrible failures at this point since the Vagina Monologues are not yet playing in Kabul and Baghdad. After all it was late 2001since we ousted those who kept Afghanistan in the Seventh Century plenty of time to have things corrected, right?
