Rummy Under Fire

Wow, there might finally be some momentum behind the anti-Rumsfeld chatter. The straw that broke the camel's back? I think it had to be Maureen Dowd's devastating parody on the 12 Days of Christmas in this past Sunday's New York Times, clearly influential journalism at its finest. There's nothing like rearranging the words of a Christmas carol to bring down a political figure.

And Jesus H., did you see this today? Next Rumsfeld will be winning the Nobel Peace Prize, and Sean Hannity will be getting a Pulitzer.

Bruce Allen's dig at Dan Shaughnessy's dis of Pedro was laugh-out-loud material for me earlier today: "I wonder if Dan has a 'Mad Libs' pad of columns he can just fill out at a moments notice." On further reflection, I'm looking forward to seeing if the Yankees throw at Pedro when he comes to bat during the Shea Stadium interleague games this summer. I think Fox might devote a Saturday pregame show to this topic, in fact.
