Listen up, Congressional Democrats

President Bush said nothing new tonight, other than that he intends to escalate the war in Iraq. Here's the best he could do to justify the "surge" - a focus group tested term for escalation - and the additional slaughter of Iraqis and Americans:

"Our past efforts to secure Baghdad failed for two principal reasons: There were not enough Iraqi and American troops to secure neighborhoods that had been cleared of terrorists and insurgents," the president said. "And there were too many restrictions on the troops we did have."

He said American commanders have reviewed the Iraqi plan "to ensure that it addressed these mistakes."

This time, apparently, we'll level the place, just as we did in Falluja--and that worked so well. Oh right: Falluja was Sunni and Sadr City in Baghdad is Shia.

But a lot has already been written about the President and his delusions, including the opinion of top generals in Iraq who were cashiered for telling the boy king that his ideas were laughably inept.

Spot wants to talk to the Democrats.

Teddy Kennedy, bless his heart, says "no way" to escalation and wants it stopped by legislation. The footfalls you hear are all the Democratic Senators and Representatives running away Kennedy. The Democrats are said to be "skeptical" of the President's plan.

Instead, Democratic Congressional leaders want to pass a "non-binding resolution to "isolate the President." Excuse me? He's pretty damn isolated already. You don't need to make him feel even lonelier: you need to stop this blithering idiot. Remember, as long as he has Barney, Bush has no emotional need for the rest of you.

So Nanci Pelosi, Harry Reid and all the rest: are you mice, or are you the people's representatives?

Here's something for you to think about. A lot of you are saying "Boy, if I knew then what I know now, I never would have voted for this war." Not good enough. Now you know, so you had better do something about it. You authorized the commencement of aggressive war, an act that the Nuremberg judges called the worst war crime of all.

Here's you chance to scrub up a little.
