Looks like the pitcher of Kool-Aid may be getting low at the Pentagon
The top U.S. commander in the Persian Gulf told Congress on Thursday that the Iraqi insurgency is undiminished and that foreign fighters continue to swell its ranks, an assessment that seemed to be at odds with more optimistic claims from the Bush administration.
Gen. John Abizaid, who heads U.S. Central Command, agreed with his superiors that the operation in Iraq will succeed, but he distanced himself from Vice President Dick Cheney's statement last month that the insurgency was "in its last throes."

Listen, I'm pissed as hell at Rove. I am a Democrat and have been forever. (I'm 54) ... my two kids who just happen to be in the U.S. Army serving are also Democrats. My son and daughter both joined as soon as they possibly could after 9/11. So far they are both safe from harm (no thanks to Rove...).
My son and daughter both emailed me last night wanting to know just who in the hell the Rove guy is. They both want to plaster his face everywhere around the bases they are stationed. It seems that Rove didn't know that a good percentage of enlisted folk were Democrats. They like to say around the bases that republicans don't volunteer.
