Who's killing who?

From a story in The Times about how the army's relationship with the press is improving (and how bad it was just a short time ago): “What is clear to me,” General Sanchez told a media group, Military Reporters and Editors, “is that you are perpetuating the corrosive partisan politics that is destroying our country and killing our service members who are at war.” General Sanchez, you will recall, was one of the men responsible for Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo. I don't think it's partisan politics that are destroying our country and killing our service members. The war might be over if our Democratic politicians knew how to use partisan politics as well as Repugs do. We don't have enough partisanship. Our representatives simply march in lockstep with der fuhrer despite what their constituents clearly want.

Oh well must remember that this morning I awoke with Miss Kitty America and Miss Doggy America, both in bed. Two titled persons. But of course they are the kind of persons who feel utterly entitled and so, when I mumble "more sleep" they pay no attention. Why would they?

How can Paul Krugman bear to be part of the same op-ed stable as William Kristol. Will Kristol really last? It's hard to believe The Times can allow it. But I guess they chose him and they have their (ugly no doubt) reasons so...
