What the world needs now is another commission...
For Bush, a Tactical Retreat on Iraq (washingtonpost.com):
"Indeed, having a commission could postpone Bush's need to admit error indefinitely; in that sense, it is something of a tactical retreat. "
That's the preferred method, as we have learned by now. I bet you can't walk twenty paces around D.C. without bumping into someone that's on a commission.
(scene: Inside of Starbucks, one well dressed man comes to stand next to another one in line)
"Hey Joe. Haven't seen you in a long time, what you been up to?"
"I'm doing the Valerie Plame investigation, how about you?"
"The WMD intelligence failure. Grande Mocha Latte no Whip..."
"Oh yeah? That's great, when's your report due out? Same but with Whip."
"They just said 'Sometime after the elections'"
"Yeah, me too."
"Hey, great seeing you again, good luck on the investigation!"
"You too man! Hope you find out what went wrong"
(Both mean laugh as they walk off sipping their Grande Mocha Lattes)
We'll see if Bush tries to appoint James Baker or Henry Kissinger to another commission. I just have to wonder, what the hell will Bush do once he gets re-elected? Will we just have to impeach him later once we find out that his Whitehouse has been negligent and corrupt? Or will, as I suspect, the "fallguys" not be asked to return to the administration and will be outed once they are safely out of harm's way? I don't doubt that Bush himself will be able to avoid any direct accusations. No president will ever pull another Nixon and incriminate themselves directly.
Though with Bush, we're not sure just how daft he really is. Watching him founder and hunt for simple phrases during the Super Bowl pre-game show was painful, almost as much as watching Janet, P. Diddy and Justin Timberlake. I was not watching the halftime show when Janet's breast got exposed so I missed out on some prime-time-millions-of-people-watching booby action. But we all know what a breast looks like by now. If given a sheet of paper and a pencil any boy over 15 would be able to draw a pretty good sketch of what Janet's breast looks like. Round, sagging with a brown nipple in the middle. That look about right? In Janet's case we got a little sun jewelry to go with the nipple. (actual photo)
And yeah.. it was staged. I hear they're going to start a commission to investigate the incident. I'm sure we'll know what happened with that before the elections.
The game was awesome. I was cheering for the Panthers. I'm always for the underdogs. I was excited to see them pull ahead in the fourth but I knew that if they gave the ball to the Pats with a minute left it was gonna be close. The kicker kicked that last kickoff like he had money on the game. If he didn't then he'll just go down in history as another player that choked and lost the game for his team. Otherwise, great game, SuperBowl worthy.
