Right on Cue
Edgar Bergen's left hand puppet came out today and announced a plan for Iraqi reconciliation. The carefully crafted 24 point plan offers amnesty to insurgents, unless you've been an insurgent that is.

I suspect that this plan was the one devised by Edgar's right hand puppet during the Camp David retreat. It was likely delivered to al Maliki during the "surprise" green zone visit by Charlie McCarthy a couple of weeks ago. And it includes an implied draw down of American troops ..... (drum roll please) ...... by late summer or early fall!

I'm so surprised!

Billmon has a nice piece on how the GOP harpies will turn 180' on the whole "cut and run" bullshit to try and win the election. The short version of that post is that the 1970's will now begin with the Nixonian "secret plan" to win the war, and that "peace is at hand" while the war continues. According to Mark Shields on the "Brooks and Shields" discussion on "The Newshour with Jim Lehrer, 57% of American deaths occurred in Vietnam after Nixon was elected on his promise to end the war.

Wonder if Americans will fall for it again?
