    Pelosi was actually threatening the White House when she made those remarks, not reinforcing an administration position.  And Biden's number of "A Whole Lot" doesn't mean much of anything.  Five thousand is a whole lot.

    If anything we on the left fell into something of a trap by pretending the July 2011 date meant more than anyone ever claimed it did.  I suspect the number that will be withdrawn initially will be based on conditions on the ground moreso than conditions on the calendar.  I heard an encouraging NPR piece about the training of cops and soldiers in Afghanistan though the other day.

    Dear Wall Street: If you want to stop feeling like a piƱata, stop stuffing yourself with our f#@$ing candy.
