No-Brainer

No, that title doesn’t refer directly to our Command in Chief or to Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld.

It actually refers to the A.P. article I just read at Common Dreams. According to the article “The Navy lawyer who led a successful Supreme Court challenge of the Bush administration's military tribunals for detainees at Guantanamo Bay has been passed over for promotion and will have to leave the military.?

I wonder why he was passed over. Could it have been because he was an incompetent lawyer, unfit to represent the Navy’s legal department?

Doubtful.

Which leaves us to wonder why he was passed over for promotion.

Damn. A no brainer, indeed.

It’s past time to drive these bastards out of office.

  1. I’d missed that tidbit of news. Not surprising, but another thing to be dismayed about. Tonight I enjoyed watching Bill Moyer’s piece on evangelical Christians who are becoming GREEN. They are breaking with others in the church over global-warming-as-myth. They are taking a lot of heat, too. Very interesting. Some of the EC’s said they may not vote straight Republican this time around. Could be just the crack in the coalition we need.

What do you think?
