She May Stuff Meat for a Living, but She Rides Whale Like a Pro

1. PSYCH!Administration backs off Bush’s vow to reduce Mideast oil imports — When the president said we will replace “more than 75 percent of our oil imports from the Middle East by 2025 [and] move beyond a petroleum-based economy and make our dependence on Middle Eastern oil a thing of the past.” It was “purely an example,” according to Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman. — Heheh.
2. Wounded Soldiers Told They Owe Money to Army — Thank you for your service and your leg. Now, let’s see . . . you owe US $2,200. PAY UP!
3. Senate Panel Rebuffed on Documents on U.S. Spying — Dag. These guys wouldn’t release the office lunch order to the damn sandwich shop! “The lunch list would be of little help to the lunch making effort; as the administration has already expressed their sandwich preferences publicly on several occasions.”
4. House sends budget-cut bill to Bush — “Actually, don’t think of it as ‘cuts.’ Think of it as ‘reforms.’ We’re not cutting money out of these programs. We’re just making sure they work better. Yeah, that’s the ticket!”
5. Two sources— with an interest in the matter(?) —assess Iran’s nuclear capabilities differently:
Jerusalem Post: Iran already has the bomb
MOSNEWS.COM: Iran Incapable of Building Nuclear Bomb — Russian Expert

    So what is the over-under on months until we invade Iran? 8? 10? Sooner or later?

    The smart money is on Israel striking in March. But that ignores the “we” and “invade” parts. I’ll take the over and say 10+. I don’t gamble for money (aside from the lottery occasionally) so it’ll have to be something else. (Nothing involving farm animals, please.)
