#1 Get lost Webb. Viet vet, Reagan SecNav, chronicler of pugnacious/awesome American Scott-Irish legacy, blah blah blah. You're a kook and a strategic imbecile on Iraq and no weasel words now will make you anything other than another bit-player in the national beclownment that occurred in November.

Bambi's moves re Gitmo (and almost everything else) are embarrassing, damaging, stupid blunders of the sort one would expect from an inexperienced and not-too-bright narcissist with a truly astonishing ignorance of history and world affairs.

Sadly, the backsliding and temporizing Webb and others just like him will muddy the waters and along with the absence of a real press will prevent Bambi from being harshly and fairly judged as unfit and unimpressive by the busy/ignorant/media-afflicted middle.

#5 Thanks for that takedown Verlaine. I haven't seen the word 'beclownment' in quite awhile, and it was used most deftly here.
