Verifying the Gloucester story

    Well said, DK. Guess we are “cocooning”, with folks on both sides listening to echo chambers,(O’Reilly, Olbermann, et al). Once someone else tells us what we want to hear, “Flavor of the month McClellan” will disappear as fast as he materialized.

    He’s a backtsbbing weasel, and the more he talks, the slimier and more dishonest he looks. Congress should be paying attention to the real dangers our nation faces. From now to November is a long time to play ostrich.

    I wouldn’t call him a “backstabber”He still says very nice things about the administration and Bush himself, but Scott just came to the realization that the war was based on an untruth whether intentional or not. He’s came to the same conclusion that most reasonable, intelligent people have.

    I see Jeff is playing ostrich, too.
