The best show in town will be the White House/Karl Rove getting out of this jam.
In other news, Bush's speech on Tuesday (June 28, 2005) didn't do anything. Zogby poll numbers this week show 42% of Americans are in favor of impeaching Bush. Is Karl Rove losing his touch? Except perhaps in the Central/Great Lakes region, where 52% are opposed and 38% in favor. How embarrassing. What a poor showing. We'll do better in the next poll. [And what's with dropping "Midwest?" Too archaic?]
United States wrong-footed again. The Iraqi ambassador to the U.N. is reporting that his nephew, who was cooperating with a U.S. Army search of his house, was found dead with a single bullet to his neck. Whoops.
The unpseakable in pursuit of the uneatable
Reports are starting to trickle out that our overworked, overstressed, overdeployed troops are now getting Prozac. If the cannon fodder gets too shellshocked, they might do something crazy, like fragging the ones responsible for this situation. This may be why Rumsfeld, Cheney, and Bush have better armor than the frontline troops.
