Take Me Out to the Ball Game

It's a good bet President Bush wishes he still owned the Texas Rangers. It hasn't been George's best week.

First, Pulitzer Prize winning author, Ron Suskind, revealed the Bush Administration ordered the CIA to lie in a letter designed to give Bush a reason to attack Iraq.

Then, in what was touted by the president and his men to be a trial of one of the most dangerous terrorists being held at Gitmo, Bin Laden's driver has the most serious charge against him thrown out and is sentenced to a few months more than the time he has already served!

Coincidentally, I started reading Great American Hypocrites: Toppling the Big Myth of Republican Politics (Crown Publishers) by Glenn Greenwald today. Guess what president is colorfully caracatured on the book's cover?

By the way, the Texas Rangers are 11 games out of first place in the American League's West Division. But at least they are in second place!
