Naturally I was really busy on Thursday, on a news day replete with interesting Republican accomplishments. Here’s a recap….
First there was Bush’s report to Congress (and the nation) on “progress” in Iraq since the Surge™ began. Check out Fred Kaplin’s Slate piece on the “accomplishments” titled “You Call That Progress? The outrageous White House report on Iraq.” I sense skepticism.
