Now THAT'S the Bush administration I know!

Condi Rice has pretty much summed up the entire Bush presidency in her testimony at the U.S. Senate:

Sen. Robert Menendez (D., N.J.), during a sharp exchange with her, said he failed to see how the troop-increase plan could work absent timetables and clearly articulated consequences for the Iraqis if sectarian violence was not tamped down.

"What will our government do if benchmarks are not met?" he asked.

"It is a mistake to speculate about what you will do if a plan fails that you are trying to make work," Rice responded.

Exactly! Making alternative plans for the possibility that your best efforts might not be sufficient isn't just wrong, it's defeatist! And possibly treasonous! That's like bringing two #2 pencils to your SAT's, or carrying a spare tire in the trunk of your car. Who does that kind of thing?

Today's new favorite lyric is...

You're like a winter without the flu
You're the best exhibit in the boyfriend zoo
In a Hardy Boys' mystery you're the greatest clue
Though I've always been partial to Nancy Drew

Artist: Bootlickers (John McNeill)
