Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

GWB, you should have taken it
Apparently Donald Rumsfeld offered to resign twice last year during the Abu Ghraib scandal, and both times Bush asked him to stay on. If that doesn't demostrate the President's poor judgment, I don't know what does. Not only could you argue that replacing Rumsfled would enable someone to take charge who was actually a better manager of the Pentagon, but also there's an entirely separate argument that simply the act of replacing him would do so much to show that America doesn't tolerate torture and abuse, and that we do indeed care about the perception of the U.S. in the world. Strike that: we care, Bush doesn't.
