Even Conservatives Wanna Dump Rumsfeld

I'll admit it. I have a slightly warmer than ice cold place in my heart for Don Rumsfeld. Wherefor you ask? Simple - he's the only Famous For DC Type I ever saw on the street while living in DC. And he even talked to the peeps I was with. (For the record, I was at the annual dinner of Women's Information Network, a Democratic, pro-choice, younger women's networking group. We were moving from the keynote address location to smaller dinner parties across the city and he was walking towards the Capitol with his wife.)

At any rate, the fact that I was fascinated with how short he is and how gracious he was to the "enemy," doesn't change the fact that I hate his war and think he's an incompetent leader. Apparently, even the extremely conservative founder and editor of the Weekly Standard agrees with me.

Contrast the magnificent performance of our soldiers with the arrogant buck-passing of Rumsfeld. ...

All defense secretaries in wartime have, needless to say, made misjudgments. Some have stubbornly persisted in their misjudgments. But have any so breezily dodged responsibility and so glibly passed the buck?

Amen. As a famous WILPF poster proclaims, It will be a great day when our schools get all the money they need and the air force has to hold a bake sale to buy a bomber.
