I Like Ike

Tongues are wagging and keyboards are clacking over the fact that Lt. Gen. Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker will be reporting to a Congressional committee today. The press is less interested in this than last time since America and her allies are clearly winning. They tried to plump up an effort by Mookie and the Iranian sponsored gangsters last week to no avail. It didn't help when a few folks found out that the NYTimes' "reporter" was a former Saddam official covering Basra from Baghdad. Tough one there. That crap used to work so much better for the Democrats and their handmaidens in the media.
The hook for the press is that the three people with a chance to be our next POTUS will be questioning Lt. Gen. Petraeus and Amb. Crocker. It could be good theater. Or it might be a clunker. Either way I already know that of McCain, Obama, Clinton, Crocker and Petraeus the only one I would vote for in November is David Petraeus. Although I would have to consider Crocker for a few hours.
Good luck to all concerned. May the best man clearly win.
