Call me when the water gets up over his mouth so he can't breathe...

Maureen Dowd
writes about how Bush is approaching the wall at high speed on Iraq, just knowing it'll move when he gets to it. After all, he's always been right so far, huh? She says it much better than I do.

He did do a few minutes of work this month, calling a Shiite leader in Baghdad a few days ago to lobby him to reach a consensus with the Sunnis, so Iraq doesn't crack apart. But the Shiites and Kurds ignored the president and skewered the Sunnis.

Iraq, it turns out, is the one branch of American government that the Republicans don't control.

She goes on with some other cultural indicators that the Bushies aren't picking up on, and ends with the promotion of the woman who tried to exorcise the racial profiling out of a Bureau of Justice press release. Go read.
