1.) It is pretty clear what the most important story of the day of Petraeus’s testimony was in Greater Wingnuttia- MOVEON’s HEADLINE IN THE NY TIMES. I disapprove of the headline, but it upsets Hugh so much I may reconsider my position on the matter.
2.) Is it really hard to figure out that the gaggle of people in the committee chambers DRESSED IN PINK may be from the group CODE PINK and may try to protest during the testimony?
3.) Not that any of this matters in the debate about what to do in Iraq, but nine more dead soldiers today. On the upside, most of them had the decency to die in wrecks, so won’t have to count their bodies when we make charts in March 2008 to prove the surge is working.
4.) Consider this an open thread.
