You'll like the headline to this story: "Analysis: Bush Mideast Stance May Flop."
Oh, so now they tell me the Bush Mideast policy is a disaster!

Death squads running rampant?
A population terrified and on the run?
6,000 civilians killed by those same death squads in the last two months?

I often think I should write something about how Insty has just become a whack job these days. (Not that I'm sure he hasn't always been a whack job, he just did a better job of pretending he wasn't.) Read below the fold...

In the spirit of full disclosure, the story I'm writing about in this post is about one of my department's most successful alums, Jacob DiPietre. I have nothing personal against this fellow, although he apparently is an exceedingly nasty campaigner and I certainly don't agree with his politics. Read below the fold...

Boy, are W and the boys furiously trying to save themselves or what?
The news: Al-Zarqawi killed, Rove cleared (for now), and Bush makes a surprise visit to Iraq.

As I said last year:

Apparently the CIA Director may have had, um, a little bit more to do with those hookers than he previously admitted. That's the only conclusion I can draw from this sudden resignation. There's something embarrassing that's going to break soon. My, my. Read below the fold...
