Lay Down, Sully

Once again the supposedly liberal New York Times gives too much to the Right. An article in today's edition describes President Bush's attempts to shore up the ruins of his credibility in the face of "Democratic accusations that he led the nation into war on false pretenses."

Democratic accusations?

My rudimentary though entirely sufficient math skills scream to me:

Almost sixty percent of Americans believe Bush lied to get us into the Iraq war.

Democrats constitute somewhere in the neighborhood of thirty-five to forty percent of the populace.

Non-affiliated voters comprise a growing proportion of the electorate. Maybe fifteen percent?

Moderate Republicans in droves have begun questioning the administration's machinations leading up to the War.

It seems to me that everyone on every side, except for the Bible-thumpers, are at least questioning, if not accusing, his Shrubbiness of leading us into this unnecessary pre-emptive War of choice.

Enough unnecessary prevaricating, Mr. Sulzberger. It's time to call a spade a spade.
