The less you know.

The better off you'll be, according to the late, great Warren Zevon. There have been recent developments in the glorious lunatic asylum we lovingly call the Congress that I thought were worth commenting on. As always, I took some time to think about what I was going to write before actually writing it. It seems that the Democrats voted to pull the troops out of Iraq by April. There are a couple problems with that idea. One, Iraqis are as ready to govern themselves as a ten year old is ready for a driver's license. Two, this would leave a lot of soldier, who have put their lives on the line, with a sense of defeat that American soldiers have not felt since Lee surrendered at Appomattox. Since "couple" usually means two, I will not list anymore. Another bit of craziness was the Congress staying up all night to debate the War in Iraq which, according to Bush, we won two or three years back. Come on! These people have not pulled all-nighters since they were in college twenty or thirty years ago. And they could not form a coherent thought back then. So, what are they trying to accomplish? Oh, and what is up with the all the Presidential candidates' MySpace pages?
