Monday's reading

William F. Buckley expounds on the Iranian conundrum. Bottom line there are no easy answers. The best solution in Iran would be the people getting scared by their president's harsh rhetoric and taking over.

Stupid/redundant headline of the day:
Two men die of heart attacks and die during Los Angeles Marathon

Clown of the Day: Richard Belzer claims to know more about the situation in Iraq than uneducated soldiers actually there because he reads 20 extremely biased newspapers a day. (Caution contains swearing - if that bothers you don't click the link)

In sports news, the Dallas Cowboys signed the very talented but equally disruptive Terrell Owens this weekend. Be interesting to see how this works out. My guess is he will have one good season for them and be a big problem if they fall out of the race early.

President Bush will be in Cleveland today continuing his series of speeches on Iraq attempting to counter balance the defeatism from the MSM. Maybe while he is in transit he'll get a chance to read this article from the Wall Street Journal. Fred Barnes looks at the Bush administration and recommends wholesale personnel changes to revitalize the second term. Barnes goes so far it becomes amusing rather than a serious recommendation for improvement.
The president's most spectacular move would be to anoint a presidential successor. This would require Vice President Cheney to resign. His replacement? Condoleezza Rice, whom Mr. Bush regards highly. Her replacement? Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, whose Bush-like views on Iraq and the war on terror have made him a pariah in the Democratic caucus. Mr. Cheney would probably be happy to step down and return to Wyoming. But it would make more sense for him to move to the Pentagon to replace Donald Rumsfeld as defense secretary, a job Mr. Cheney held during the elder Bush's administration.
Barring a change in health, I don't expect Cheney to step down, but if he did it would be to go fishing not to take a cabinet level position.

Tagliabue announced his retirement today also, for your sports section. Condi Rice has said she'd like his job. What about that for screwing up the cabinet :)
