Are we going on a trip? Why are we in this handbasket? Is that sulfur I smell?
Hmm. Last little political message. There may be an upside to this, as long as the short term damage is somewhat reversible. As illustrated here -- all accountability falls completely to the Republicans. Any and all of the shit that doesn't clear up, or goes badly -- Bush lost his scapegoats. In a more rational world, this would be the best way to prevent a land war in Iraq -- every casualty would not only be one less direct vote, but one more body to be questioned in debate.
