    It's popcorn - or salve for our addled spirits.

    No "commission" that has ever been convened to expose the "truth" about anything has ever accomplished more than resignations or pardons.

    I expect the very same to issue from any examination of some of the very same characters who have already been investigated and whose actions were condemned by other commissions, among them: Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Feith, Kagan et al.

    We have to establish a three-strikes rule if we're going to come crashing down with all the force of a toothless commission on them yet again.
