Remember, Parliament = Democracy = Unconditional Success!

Pay no attention to the insurgent behind the curtain.

The Republicans and probably the media are going to spin like crazy about how it's been a long, bumpy road, but Dubya resolutely stayed the course in the face of disastrous poll numbers (which he doesn't pay attention to, of course) and has now been Vindicated By History.

And I think it'll work... temporarily. His approval rating will go back over 50% for about a week or two, until the bombings start again, and everyone realizes that Iraq is still broken.

Eli, I'll have to call that 50% and raise you by Syria.

If the PRETENDENT'S numbers ever see 50% again, I won't drink a beer for a week. That should make me damn good and cranky! :)

There is going to be a war- finally - bewteen Bush and the war-mongering Neocons when Bush tries to pull the troops home before the 2006 elections, and the Neocon/evangelical wing will demand that the troops stay to fulfill their long-term dream of Mid-east domination. It will make the Harriet Miers dust-up look like a tea party. Pass the popcorn.

GreggMT says: "and the Neocon/evangelical wing will demand that the troops stay to fulfill their long-term dream of Mid-east domination"

My personal opinion? Place the emphasis on the extreme evengelicals -- some of them *want* the Mid-East as destabilized as possible -- they think it will hasten the "end times"

Always bew wary of someone who thinks that have a use for a universal solvent...
