Taking the hit

With no nascent terrorist plots gurgling away in Army surplus stores in seedy corners of the country, Rumsfeld was called on to fall on the grenade of publicity about the Democrats big win in the elections yesterday. Indeed, mere minutes before word that Rumsfeld was stepping down, I had warned of some expected announcement of great import,
I wonder how long before some unbaked terrorist plot is unveiled or some other alarm is sounded. Wait for it. You know it's coming.
And then, bam! I didn't quite see the Rumsfeld thing coming but the announced resignation has, nonetheless, done considerable work in distracting headlines from the Democrats. So, what will be on the major news tonight on the networks? Bet it doesn't lead off with the elections.

Damn these guys are good.
