Iraq Study Group: A Very Dark Possibility


As the pursuit of bipartisan consensus propagates through the airwaves, a very dark possiblity is also making ripples in the aether. Ed Schulz*, a former republican who now bills himself as ‘a liberal with a microphone’, points out that W has time to pull troops out of Iraq and in the event of a significant increase in ‘civil unrest’ put them back in in time for the 2008 election. “See? You should have let me stay the course.”

Is this a real possiblity? Consider education, disaster management eg Katrina, prescription drugs, etc., etc. We’ve seen how someone dedicated to proving that ‘government can’t work’ can ‘make it not work’. Do we really want to trust him to manage a withdrawal he believes can’t work. There is a risk associated with failing, in the name of bipartisanship, to remove W from office ASAP.

The heat just went on. It is oil. I see dead people again. Maybe I should call Joe for oil. Is Hugo‘s oil less tainted?
