    can't say i'm surprised by the lack of progress. i'm curious to see how the WH reacts to the collins/nelson bill.

    Well, here are a few excerpts from another article on the same subject. See if you can recognize the difference in tone:

    Yes, we will once again be told by Bush that progress is being made, that "it's tough" and it's going to be slow, and that now is not the time to quit. In short, we'll be asked to lower our expectations again and to simply fork over more money.

    This article, like the one zim mentioned, does go on to say that there are likely to be further GOP defections from the war effort, but I fully expect Bush to maintain his robotic stay-the-course-stay-the-course-stay-the-course mode.

    I'm more inclined to believe that the heart of darkness is Dick Cheney, and that the reason nobody knows what Bush thinks is that Bush is waiting for Cheney to tell him.

    Me neither. People of that region have never failed to underwelm even the lowest expectations.

    Take a look at Dubai these days and see if you can say that again.
