Staying the course

Heads of State who ride and wrangle,
Who look at your face from more than one angle,
Can cut you from their bloated budgets
Like sharpened knives through Chicken McNuggets.
Last week we learned that a December 2003 report warned of suspected abuse in Iraq prisions. That was four months before the Secretary of Defense told us how shocked he was to learn about the abuses.

As of today it's official. Rumsfeld is staying put. Amid the resignations of half the cabinet, the one guy who should be resigning in disgrace is staying put, having been asked to do so by Bush.
