Oh, yeah !
No matter how hard we try, the Washington Post begrudgingly mumbles that -
The evidence of a drop in violence in Iraq is becoming hard to dispute.
Here's the money quote:
...it's looking more and more as though those in and outside of Congress who last month were assailing Gen. Petraeus's credibility and insisting that there was no letup in Iraq's bloodshed were -- to put it simply -- wrong.
Could have told you that a month ago, ladies.
Now, if I recall, it is a government health care program, and not a new techonological advancement, but the AP seems a bit confused:
Dems vow new bill if S-chip veto stands
"Isn't that sad for America's children?" said Pelosi
Depends on what the S-chip actually does....
The Times hedges its bets:
Israel Struck a Nuclear Project in Syria, Analysts Say
It should probably have read "Israel saves the world, again", but I won't go that far. But this far:
The officials did not say that the administration had ultimately opposed the Israeli strike, but that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates were particularly concerned about the ramifications of a pre-emptive strike in the absence of an urgent threat.
The fact that Syria, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabi, and Egypt haven't even raised a peep says a lot more than the "analysts" are telling you...
Is old-school Israeli deterrance back in style?
And from the wacko Guardian in the U.K.:
Al Gore wins Nobel peace prize. And this time, no one can take it away from him
Duh. I already knew he was going to bed clutching the damn thing...
How ideologically rigid are New Jersey's Democrats?
Polls: N.J. voters blase about corruption
New Jersey voters think their politicians are more corrupt than other states and link government corruption to the Democrats, but are no more likely to vote Republican....
So Jersey's Democrats find it preferable to be robbed by their leaders than to vote for a different party....does that make them blase, or stupid?
Give this state five more years of liberal domination, and it's going to look like the post-apocalyptic world of Mad Max...think I'll start accessorizing my car now....
And I can't resist this one, either:
Massive Tag Body Spray Slick Spreading From Jersey Shore
And finally, Reuters reports something accurate, although it hasn't quite happened yet:
Rice sees no breakthroughs on Mideast trip
Hey! I can see the future too! The "peace initiative" does collapse, and Reuters blames....blames....
Israeli demands doom peace
Wait for it...
