A troubled President went into a bar on a stormy night. The bartender asked "What can I do for you?" The President wanted a glass of port and asked what kind was available. The bartender said "We don't get much call for port and have only that dusty bottle on the bottom shelf." The President said, "Well, I guess it's any port in a storm."
Perhaps the President should switch to chablis. Meanwhile, back at the oasis, Carlyle ....
Six or 21, who cares? Bush can ignore Congresses 'input' on this issue just like on wiretaps.
You are one great propogandist, Quiddity.
That graphic is fantastic.
