Woe is us

From Thomas Powers' NYTBR review of "The Next Attack" by Daniel Benjamin and Steven Simon: "The book takes an important first step in the direction of realism by arguing in sober detail that the bright hopes and confident ideas behind the invasion of Iraq were illusions. Nothing dies hharder, as Vietnam taught us, and it will probably take another year or two for that fact to really sink in on a national scale. But once it does, the hard part can begin."

It's going to happen some day and when it does the fall of George Bush will be beautiful to behold. He can barely speak when things are going his way, I can't wait to watch him bumble through all the hearings he will sit through during his last year in office.
