lesson of the day

sometimes the fall guy won't fall quietly.

make no mistake, i think bremer was a terrible leader of iraq. but pretend his decisions had nothing to do with the white house flies in the face of the fact that bush appointed him precisely because he thought bremer would carry out his policies--not to mention the common visits back and forth to washington, the teleconferences with the white house, the praise the president heaped on bremer at the time, the presidential medal of freedom bush gave him a year and a half later, et cetera.
