Wow - Drudge Report is actually worth reading today. Lots of good stories to peruse, the first obvious one being Rumsfeld getting hated on by Trent Lott. WTF? I know I'm feeling a little under the weather, but am I actually hallucinating here? The administration's butt boy revolts?

"I'm not a fan of Secretary Rumsfeld," Lott, R-Mississippi, told the Biloxi Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday morning. "I don't think he listens enough to his uniformed officers."
Maybe it has to do with this other story about the soldiers getting zero intelligent support from this admin:
Evidence includes numbers of deserters (reportedly in the thousands), resignations of reserve officers, lawsuits by those whose duty period has been involuntarily extended, and a refusal to go on dangerous missions without proper equipment. There's also been a willingness at grunt level to publicly challenge the Pentagon - as Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld found out recently in a trip to the war zone, where he got an earful about unarmored humvees. (My emphasis)
But I'm sure the soldiers are still praying for Bush - which is good, since he'll need all the divine guidance he can get when he shuts down the GPS system to find the "evul turrists" (what, don't you believe?!?). There's also a great article in the Washington Times (for once) about the other shit we can expect in the next decade - and it's not all fire and brimstone. And it's not in the distant future, either - look at how Israel recognizes what the next big thing is - and it's not us (maybe it's Asian values?). Wow, where's all this Judeo-christian solidarity that I get shoved down my throat every time I question why we put that little mooch state's security above ours? And it looks like I'm not the only one who doesn't dig our "Bring it on, grab our balls, and flick off the world" excuse for a foreign policy that actually makes us less safe.

And the best news for the future of these united States? DC decided that Major League Baseball can't loot the pockets of city taxpayers to get rich. Am... I awake? Is this a dream?
