ok, I really don't understand this move. Bush camp offering Rummy up as a peace offering to the Dems as a way to avoid impeachment? But having Rummy resign just makes him easier to subpoena? It's interesting that the Bush camp wont "cut-and-run" from the "terrorists" but they will when faced with Democrat control of congress? Hmmmm....
"avoid impeachment" WHAT DID HE DO SOMETHING BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!......LOL
ok... now here's the guy nominated to replace him????
Robert Gates... Robert F-ING Gates!!! Seriously!! Does Bush know anybody who WASN'T involved in Iran-Contra??
[start Bush impersonation]
"Let's see, uh, rummy's leavin, gonna need a new secrURterry of defense... hmm, Dick knows this Robert Gates fella. Let's have a look at his resume. Hmmm, knows my Daddy and he participated in covert CIA "scheme" to subvert direct orders of congress... heh, that's exactly what I'm looking for in a secrURterry of defense."
[end Bush impersonation]
come on, did the white house get sucked into freakin bizzaro world, or what?
Fred, you got one deadly hammer there, pal! Nailed the essence right down both times!
Rummy didn't resign. He was offered as, uh... forced to be, sacrificial lamb for yesterday's Republican comeuppance.
I also admire your grasp on late 20th century history. Most people would read "Robert Gates" and think he was some MSoft spawn. Nice observation!
btw - Where the fuck is Carter to defend his W'04 position??????
Come back, C. We miss ya.
