Free at last

For years we were told that Colin Powel had resigned his post as Secretary of State, but we now know that he was asked to resign. I suspect the same situation has occured with Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld but as long as we are well rid of him, I can wait until the whole truth comes out before I gloat. His departure of course, may be a continuation of the too little too late policy that got us where we are in Iraq, but we shall see.

Anyway, with the House now a Democratic stronghold and the Senate only the width of a dream away, it may look like only another sunny Florida afternoon, but to me, it's a whole new day.

The new guy doesn't seem to be much better. He's a relic from Iran-Contra. Amazing how they keep recycling the sleeze.

Many of our current problems stem from the incompetence and arrogance of the CIA, but this is how Bush operates - promote the most incompetent, let them screw up, deny the screwups as long as you can and when you can no longer deny it, give them a medal.

I don't think Rumbum resigned voluntarily. I think the pressure from the military to get rid of Rumsfeld made it hard for Bush to go on saying that he supports them.
