The Mustache Begins to Understand

Sort of.

Emphasis and ["holy shit!" exclamation points] by yours truly.

A Crisis Almost Without Equal

Consider Thomas Friedman’s column in The New York Times today, and its implications.

Friedman, who still supports the Iraq war[!!!!!!!], opens by declaring that given a choice between a nuclear Iran and an attack on that country engineered by the White House, he would choose the former. That’s how little he trusts the diplomatic and military chops of Bush, Rumsfeld, Condi and Co. He cites “the level of incompetence that the Bush team has displayed in Iraq, and its refusal to acknowledge any mistakes or remove those who made them.”

But then he goes on: “I look at the Bush national security officials much the way I look at drunken drivers. I just want to take away their foreign policy driver's licenses for the next three years. Sorry, boys and girls, you have to stay home now -- or take a taxi. ... You will not be driving alone. Not with my car.”
Unfortunately, Bushco owns the DMV, so there won't be any DUIs issued to this bunch. Dubya will "stay the course" even though it means the country winds up wrapped around a tree. Like many drunk drivers, however, Bush will walk away from the wreck without a scratch unless we do something---NOW.
