He’s claiming a “pre-scheduled root canal.”
Riiiiiiiiiiiiight. Then again, if I had just called the Republican party a bunch of Goebbels-loving liars and got caught doing it – particularly if I’m from California, which is having a somewhat more competitive series of state and federal races this year than usual – I’d be “pre-scheduling” a root canal, too. Less painful all around.
PS: The movie about a Nazi dentist that you’re trying to remember is Marathon Man. Haven’t seen it myself, but it’s supposed to be good.
PPS: Yes, I’m doing a lot of paraphrasing, here. And?
And so it begins:
Sen. Russ Feingold, D-WI, called on President Obama to announce a timetable for withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan. “This is a strategy that is not likely to succeed,” Sen. Feingold said about the troop buildup in Afghanistan.
“I think it is time we start discussing a flexible timetable so that people around the world can see when we are going to bring our troops out,” said Feingold. “Showing the people there and here that we have a sense about when it is time to leave is one of the best things we can do,” he added.
And, very possibly, so much for the Democrats’ “Good War.” Although if so… really, the writing was on the wall*.
*I suggest that the Democrats refresh their memories regarding the origin of that phrase.
