My comments -- the first comment was done in this spirit: I believe that we're going to win. I believe that -- and, by the way, if I didn't think that, I wouldn't have our troops there. That's what you've got to know. We're going to succeed. My comments yesterday reflected the fact that we're not succeeding nearly as fast as I wanted, when I said it at the time, and that the conditions are tough in Iraq, particularly in Baghdad.Yeah, right. So go ahead and tell us you're blowing off the Iraq Study Group. We already know that. I go back to finish shaving. From the other room I hear T voicing her thoughts:
I keep expecting the part where he declares himself our Immortal Emperor. But so far, so good...Thank heaven for small favors. As I leave the house, he still has not assumed the dictatorial powers he clearly wishes he had. I get in the car and drive off, scanning the radio stations for the news conference. Can't find it. That figures. Must not be important.
