Comical Rumi. His eyes increasingly pointing in different directions, Secretary Rumsfeld today explained that critics of Administration policy are responsible for its failures.
Mr. Rumsfeld did not mention any of the domestic critics by name. But he suggested that those who have been critical of the administration’s handling of the war in Iraq and its aftermath might be encouraging American foes to believe that the United States might one day walk away from the effort, as it has in past conflicts.Well, obviously. After all, no “American foes” would ever suspect that the US “might one day walk away from the effort” if those “domestic critics” would just button their lips. Being as how “foes” never read any history, certainly not their own. That’s why they’re foes, and not smart Americans like us.
So come on, shut up, you darn critics! You’re ruining everything! [01:36 PM]
