"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Rummie Suprise

Apparently the Busheviks learned from the way the world reacted to the US instigation of the war in Iraq, and have now designated the Sec'y of Defense Donald Rumsfeld to mouth the D-word (diplomacy). But of course, they still have formerly respected and now known to be a Bush pocket-pet Senator John McCain leaving "all options on the table" and making vague 'mushroom cloud' threats. We all heard that 'all options' crap before Bush invaded Iraq. What it really means is that we're saying the D-word, but we're picking the targets already. Keep your K-Y handy, America, or you'll get done dry.

I'm suprised that Rummie is even suggesting diplomacy. I always thought that diplomacy was handled by the "Diplomats" at the Dept. of State, and that the Sec'y of Defense and the Pentagon got up when the diplomats failed. Boy, was I dumb, huh? That Constitutional style of thinking is just so 'pre-911'. Nowadays its just all about marketing the agenda, period.

And McCain. People used to respect him. Now he just appears to be another dog-on-a-leash for the Bushies. It's starting to look like he might be sucking up for an endorsement in 2008, isn't it? Too bad. Another formerly decent statesman war hero turned pointless politician.
