Difficult to keep up

Jesus. Just a moment ago, the headline of the CNN.com lead story read "Bloody Baghdad: 70 bodies found in 30 hours." I left for a drink of water, then sat down again to find the headline had changed to "86 bodies found."

God knows what the headline will be at the end of the day.

In the meantime: our wartime president is publicly setting benchmarks for pulling American troops out of areas of Iraq (roughly half the country) by a specific date, the end of 2006 - the kind of announcement that he had declared all but treasonous, an aid to insurgents, when his critics had called for such a benchmark.

Hypocrisy and political expediency. Who says George Bush can't multi-task?

(Standing at the cross-post...)
