generals.jpgAbove, the precise number of retired generals required to call for your resignation before David Ignatius will take a position on you.


We're going to start with the last sentence of David Ignatius' piece and work backwards, mostly because the last graf is the most glaringly stupid:

The administration needs to look this one clearly in the eye: Without changes that shore up public support in America, it risks losing the war in Iraq.

"Risks." "Losing." (see, Note? Two can play at this quasi-cryptic thing). Anyway, that's the setup, here's the punchline:

Rumsfeld's replacement should be someone who can help restore a bipartisan consensus for a sensible Iraq policy. One obvious candidate would be the centrist Democrat Sen. Joe Lieberman. Another would be a centrist Republican with military experience, such as Sen. Chuck Hagel or Sen. John McCain.

Yes. Joe Lieberman, obvious candidate for Rumsfeld replacement. We're beginning to agree with Joe Klein: WE CLEARLY HATE AMERICA.

Here, allow us to reach in to our hat o' centrists and pick out a couple names -- yeah, Chuck Hagel! He'll turn things around right quick! Shore up support at home, which will magically make everyone in Basra get along and get rid of those nasty death squads.

JOHN "MAVERICK" MCCAIN CAN'T EVEN GET AMERICAN RELIGIOUS EXTREMISTS TO LISTEN TO HIM, HOW'S HE GONNA GET IRAQI ONES TO GIVE A SHIT ABOUT FORMING A WORKING GOVERNMENT?

Hooray! There was a sign in the Rose Garden! It said how big the Mueller Investigation was! And most importantly the Mueller Investigation said NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION, PREZNIT TRUMP GOOD, NOT A RUSSIAN.

Alex Díaz de la Portilla on Facebook

Alex Díaz de la Portilla, former Florida Republican state senator, is in hot water over a leaked WhatsApp chat log that appears to show campaign workers chatting about destroying or disappearing absentee ballots filled out for the candidate's opponent in the nonpartisan county election, according to the Miami New Times. Díaz de la Portilla ultimately came in third in the May 2018 special election for a seat on the Miami-Dade County Commission, so even if some of his people did deep-six some ballots, it didn't apparently help him. Clearly, these pikers could have learned a lot from the experts in North Carolina about electoral fuckery.

Still, you have to appreciate just how brilliantly Díaz de la Portilla plays the role of a local pol accused of just a teensy bit of ratfucking.
