Profiles in Courage / Making Great Progress

You know all those maverick Republicans 'turning against' the President and his war? What are they actually planning to do about this new-found 'opposition'? A writer at Daily Kos looks at the bill they are gravitating towards and what a farce it is.

In short? More lipstick for the pig, and more kicking the can down the road. Very bold stand.

And there's the news that because the "Iraqi government is unlikely to meet any of the political and security goals or timelines President Bush set for it in January when he announced a major shift in U.S. policy," that the administration response is "marshaling alternative evidence of progress to persuade Congress to continue supporting the war."

Double the 'c', double the 's', that's how you spell 'success'!

Combine that with the rumors that the al-Maliki government is in its last throes, and the reports that 140,000 fully-armed Turkish soldiers are amassing near Iraq's norther border, and you have a pungent recipe for (greater) disaster.
