[In view of the ongoing blogosphere-wide zombie infestation, I'm belatedly cross-posting this November, 2009 item from my blog.]
INT. OFFICE -- DAY
An OFFICIOUS GENTLEMAN sits at a desk and regards a VISITOR'S somewhat awkward entrance. An empty chair faces the desk.
Hello, is this the, uh... progressive blogosphere?
Oh, yes indeed! In fact, this is the A-list of the selfsame!
Ah, very good! Very good.
I had some questions.

President Bush will tell the nation this week he plans to reduce the American troop presence in Iraq by about 30,000 by next summer, but will condition those and further cuts on continued progress, The Associated Press has learned.
In the speech, the president will say he understands the deep concerns Americans have about U.S. involvement in Iraq and their desire to bring the troops home, they said. Bush will say that after hearing from Petraeus and Crocker, he has decided on a way forward that will reduce the number of troops but not abandon Iraq, they said.
Could it be that the “surge” will end not because of conditions on the ground, rather, what top military officials have been saying for a long time: we don’t have the troops.
We'll just bite their legs off... Read below the fold...
