Go forth and read

By Libby

It was moving day and I'm knee deep in boxes of stuff, so it's quick hits tonight.

Condi is definitely sounding shaky and looking a little more shifty-eyed than usual.

My pal Cernig has some cogent thoughts on why a rapid end to the occupation would make sense and breaks the news that Rick Moran of Right Wing Nuthouse has apparently jumped off the Bush bandwagon for good.

John Cole at Balloon Juice welcomes Rick aboard the good ship Defeatist. Just as well he didn't mention the afternoon schedule. The continous showings of Farhenheit 911 and An Inconvenient Truth probably would have scared Rick off.

The WaPo asks the experts if the war is lost and as Greg Sargent notes:
[I]t's pretty striking that the only three people the paper apparently could find to say "No" to the question were (1) someone who is President Bush's national security adviser (Hadley); (b) someone who actually helped create the current plan (Kagan); and (c) someone who -- well, someone who is Victor Davis Hanson.
That truly does speak for itself.

The privatization of our infrastructure has been going on for some time now and I have to agree it's a disturbing trend and extraordinarily shortsighted. Cities are so strapped for cash that the politicians selling the people's assets to avoid having to confront the economic squeeze on their own watch. Next time they run out of money, they'll have nothing to sell and meanwhile, the general public won't be able to afford to use the public byways. Somehow that doesn't sound like a good long range plan.

And hundreds marched in support of Impeachment Day during the president's visit in Miami. Not that Dear Leader would be troubled by it.
The president was escorted in and out of the campus through an entrance on the far side of the campus, where he could not see the protests. Two pro-Bush supporters rode their bicycles in front of the protesters screaming "Commies," but by and large, the rally drew few administration supporters.
No doubt. Those are getting harder to find all the time.

Ol' Shifty eyed Condi said this morning that the whole world believed Saddam had nukes so she can't be blamed.

It's not just her eyes that are shifty.

True enough Fogg. She's a PNACer all the way to the bone.

Lester - I don't have a TV set up at the moment so I'm going to miss it. Maybe somebody will post the highlights.
