  •  I double dog dare them. (9+ / 0-)

    I don't think anything is going to forestall Bush's egomaniacal need to send more troops.  We are mere mortals; he fashions himself an instrument of God.  He will continue along his path of confusing what is good for him with what is good for this country.  Unfortunately, he is gambling that history will redeem him.  If he sends another 35,000 Americans into a that meatgrinder he is going to find that history may redeem him only because his foolishness proved to be a fatal wound to the GOP.  We have the reins of power now, but only by the thinnest of margins; this is further complicated by the fact that the Democratic caucus is much more fractured than the GOP caucus.  So anything stupid like sending more sons, daughters, mothers and fathers off to die face down in sand will most assuredly boost our majority to more workable margins come 2008.

    So I say again: I double dog dare them.

    Lobbyists need Republicans like pimps need whores.
