"Madness, Madness"

If George W. Bush sends tens of thousands more American troops into Baghdad, any hope of his pleading temporary insanity over Iraq at the bar of history will end.

There are people in straightjackets who are more in touch with reality.

Few in Congress will back him, other than John McCain, who has morphed into the Manchurian Candidate, so he can claim in 2008 the President waited too long to take his advice. And, of course, faithful Joe Lieberman, maundering over “yes, victory in Iraq” in the Washington Post.

Nancy Pelosi has declared impeachment is “off the table.” If so, what else can be done to keep all this from ending like “The Bridge on the River Kwai,” with a dazed America mumbling “Madness, Madness”?
