And Thus, the Woodwork Begins to Utter its Revelations

So what are we seeing, this day after the 2006 elections?

First there’s Rumsfeld’s resignation — which honestly shouldn’t have been a surprise to anyone… when you have people calling from within the military for it, that stings more than any partisan attack.

But what do we see next? Oh-ho! Have we, dare I say, forgotten Poland? Lest we have, the newest news from our most-referenced ally of the 2004 election is that they’re saying they were misled into joining the war?

Warsaw decided to take part in the war with Iraq on grounds of untrue information which it received from the US administration – former President of Poland Aleksander Kwasniewski has told a German daily.

The resistance, those hiding, those biting their tongues for so long are now coming out of the woodwork. That Kwasniewski’s statement comes so soon on the tail end of the US elections I don’t think is a coincidence, and I think we’ll see a lot more, both from within the confines of American walls and outside.

Mr President, your arrogance in national and international affairs has been supported by deception, unsurpassed unitarianism and outright hot air. But this most recent news is just another whiff of the stagnant stench this administration has been trying to bottle up for six years now. I don’t think it will be the last, however… and perhaps your biggest problem is that you’ll no longer be able to sell it.

If anyone can find an English-translated copy of the German article above, that would be great.

So, interesting.

A few of my less-malignant thoughts.

* Mr President, you’ve not only exhausted your political capital, you’ve maxed out your credit line and are a bit delinquent on payments.

* One of the talking heads on TV last night pondered how the next two years would pass for the GOP and the President. I hope they pass about as well as a kidney stone.

* I’d bet even money that Santorum ends up with a teaching job or some sort of lecture post at Patrick Henry College… it’s pretty damned close to his Virginia home.
