I remember when the person in the WH actually looked like a person I could admire... this? not likely!

Sen. Edward Kennedy Iraq Speech at National Press Club

Here's Kennedy speech on escalation at the National Press Club. He used to be my Senator and I still like him.

But, I was recently reflecting, I have never lived in a state that could be considered "red" so I have usually had at least one Senator I liked.

Poll ratings

On the sort-of-eve of the shrub's escalation speech...polls show he has tanked...and he hasn't even opened his mouth yet.

Of course in the ago of instant "news" and floating trial balloons to see-what-the-polls-say-we-should-say WH - we know he is asking for an escalation...and please let's use the correct is an escalation.

King shrub probably has to practice his speech all day today and tomorrow so there is not much of a chance of it it's possible by tomorrow night only Laura and Barney will be the lone supporters of whatever he sputters!

And a big thank you to Ted Kennedy who proposes "to prohibit the use of funds for an escalation of United States Forces in Iraq above the numbers existing of January 9, 2007."
