I was privileged to see Bay Buchanan, one of the great minds of the Republican Party, on CNN, discussing Bob Woodward’s new book on the Bush administration.
The book reports that Colin Powell, being fired by President Bush after the 2004 election, suggested that Don Rumsfeld should also go. Buchanan stated smugly that “Rumsfeld won that fight.”
What a relief — our Secretary of Defense finally won a fight! The path to victory in Iraq is now clear.
We must subtly lure the Iraqi insurgents into joining the State Department. Then, Rumsfeld will surely destroy them all with his superior bureaucratic infighting skills.
