Susie's enchanting Daisy works her wiles on Tuck at double birthday dinner Saturday night.
"It is time for this Lincoln to give his Gettysburg Address," writes Don Suber in a pre-Alito-SCOTUS-nomination [Bill Kristol is beaming] post that gets it just right:
At Arlington on Nov. 11, the president must in 250 words or less tell the people we are not going to throw away 2,000 lives away like we tossed aside 58,000 lives in Vietnam by walking away like a nation with attention deficit.
We know the president is in good shape because all the lefty newspapers are advising him to go bipartisan, dump Rove and otherwise concede the 2004 election.
Susie's grand old Arthur assumes the shape of his chosen container, in this case a Victoria's Secret birthday box emptied of superflous contents, i.e., birthday presents for our lovely hostess.
Of course, the media is against him. It opposed Lincoln, FDR and Reagan. The latest is Knight-Ridder, which calls the Scooter indictment a stain on the presidency.
Baloney. California Conservative put it best: "The only reason he (Libby) is being indicted is because the CIA is waging war against the Bush administration."
Bush's comeback is pretty easy to see. He starts with a solid Supco nominee, picks up on the budget-cutting started by Coburn -- real cuts, not showy Alaskan bridges -- and finally, Bush takes the Iraq war to the people.
