It's almost too much to take in at once.
Democrats take the House and the Senate, at least until Lieberman flips. *checks watch*
Rumsfeld is fired/resigns (firesigns?).
Bush admits that he lied about keeping Rumsfeld on to make the bad mean reporters quit picking on him.
My question is, wouldn't it have made more sense to fire Rummy before the election? I know, I know, sign of weakness, admission of error and all that rot. But everyone knows that Rumsfeld is a blithering incompetent, so by giving him a pre-election vote of confidence, Bush merely makes himself look clueless and out-of-touch rather than resolute. I think firing Rummy would have actually made for a great October surprise, and it might have been just enough to salvage the Senate and probably a few House seats. Too bad for the Republicans that Dubya is ruled by his own arrogance, and is so addicted to lying and concealing that he even does it when the truth would actually help him.
So, Don, now that you're unemployed and pissed off with lots of free time on your hands... have you ever considered writing a book? I'm just trying to help out here - you really should have a hobby to keep yourself busy, and I'm pretty sure Command & Conquer would kick your ass.
