Blue Gal just loooves The New York Times. Maureen Dowd (goddess) on August 20:
...You know you're in trouble when Henry Kissinger gives you advice on how to exit a war....
Domestic support [for the war] is waning because the president remains too stubbornly ensconced in his fantasy world - it's worse than Barbie in her dream house - to reassure Americans that he has a plan to get out.
As we approach the 2,000 mark of coffins coming home that we're not allowed to see, it doesn't even look like a war. It looks like a lot of kids being blown to smithereens by an invisible enemy.
And this just in from the AP: The Army is planning for four more years in Iraq. Uh, memo to Barbie in her dream house: YOU haven't got four more years. The clock is ticking on my sidebar, honey.
