Like An Oscar Winning Film Maker Only Sooner 
Michael Moore has a great essay on why invasion ≠ liberation. He writes more eloquently than I did last year on this subject.

Like A Counter-Terrorism Expert Only Sooner 
Richard A. Clarke, the only member of the Executive Branch to apologize for Bush sleeping at the wheel on Sep 11th says,

To do this, we should announce our intention to reduce U.S. forces in Iraq beginning in December and concluding with the withdrawal of all major ground combat units within 18 months; declare that the United States seeks no permanent military bases in Iraq; gain permission from Kuwait to station additional combat units there to create an “over the horizon” capability to deal with terrorists in Iraq; accelerate the training and equipping of the Iraqi army with embedded Special Forces; work with our regional allies to create an enhanced covert action capacity to combat Iraq-based terrorism; speed up U.S. reconstruction efforts; and convene a regional process to guarantee the stability of Iraq, inviting Iran, Syria, Jordan, Turkey and the Gulf countries to join.

More detailed than my peace plan of more than two years ago but Speaker Pelosi might actually listen to him.

New Theme - Pass It On 
Republicans won't let the troops get candy and flowers at home this Christmas.

Like A Nobel Prize Winning Diplomat Only Sooner 
Kissinger, in November of 2006 intoned that a military victory is not possible in Iraq. Sounds like something I said in October of 2003.

No One Could Have Anticipated... 
... that a boy who liked to torture frogs would one day write a memo ordering the CIA to torture people.

2006 - A Watershed Moment 
A commenter at Eschaton noted Majority Party - that feels good to say. Whooooooooooo!NSA

We have been the majority all along. Democrats far outnumber Rethuglicans. It was the strange effect of huge amounts of money spent on TV ads that warped electoral results for many of those years. This includes the free advertising Republicans get from their news whores.
2006 is the year Americans stopped believing everything they saw on TV. Media Matters has cataloged what America is told by the talking heads. It isn't pretty. Network TV is still very powerful but it is no longer the sole source of a national dialogue.

Good News, Bad News 
The good news is Bush is finally going to be have some brakes put onto his reckless ways. The bad news: it isn't going to be as much fun cleaning up after aWol as he had making the mess.

In Pennsylvania, Democrat Bob Casey, son of a popular former governor, soundly defeated incumbent Sen. Rick Santorum.
No jokes about coming from behind...

Does Sen. Reid Have Clitoris Envy? 
If he helped anti-war liberals as much as Rep. Pelosi did he might have been Senate President Pro Tempore rather than also ran.
Congrats, Sen. Reid! Of course, Pelosi's majority is bigger.

Thank you, Gov Dean.

Breaking News! 
Bush to hold press conference Wednesday
He will reportedly chastise Democrats for saying "stay the course." He will also make fun of Democrats for supporting his failed invasion before they opposed it.

Bush runs a war as well as he did an oil business in Texas. Tomorrow's elections are a clear choice and I wish I could be more forceful than this. Democrats might hold Bush accountable for his military failure. Republicans won't.

Hyprocisy is your name. You accept fundraising help from George Bush while at the same time criticizing Sen. Cantwell for supporting the Iraq invasion; saying stay the course for years and having no exit strategy. Sen. Cantwell is wedded to Bush's policy of ethnic cleansing in Iraq for reasons beyond my understanding. She is getting my vote despite her horrific shortsightedness in this regard because, unlike a Republican like McGavick$!, she won't be wedded to Bush's economic and environmental disasters as well.

Saddam To Hang 
No one could have anticipated that Saddam's death sentence would make Iraq more violent and unstable.
