Today's Cartoon: Donald Rumsfeld Resigns

I think the fact that George W. Bush didn't use Donald Rumsfeld's "impending" resignation ahead of the mid-terms to send the message to voters that he was serious about reassessing his Iraq strategy, creates the impression that not only was there no new plan in the works, but that Rumsfeld probably had no intention of skipping town, until the morning after Democrats swept the elections ;)

Perhaps by resigning as Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld figured that he could be of better use to the Bush Administration by becoming their (e)scapegoat for just about everything that has gone wrong over the last 6 years (which is just about everything). Either that, or he just wanted to deny the Democrats the satisfaction of getting him thrown out of the Pentagon. Whatever his reason may be, I get the feeling that we haven't seen the last of Mr. Rumsfeld... despite his effort.

Hey! I think I've figured out why some Republicans are so opposed to stem cell research... It's because they still want to be able to rely on Alzheimer's disease as an excuse for not remembering anything, for when they get subpoenaed after they leave office ;)
