A few gracious days away from the television, away from internet media, and what have I missed?
Iraqi elections were overshadowed by the fact that Bush authorized possible illegal domestic spying. And we found out that Zarkawi was caught then released. Plus no cloture vote means 'no' vote on the Patriot Act.
So, the White House remains on the defensive, even giving an address to the nation that should applaud the elections in Iraq comes off merely as an attack on critics and an a list of excuses for keeping troops there after the elections. Meanwhile, Bush begins to recover in the polls. Interesting.
