Throwing Ideas Against the Wall

… “Stay the course” isn't sticking anymore, which is unfortunate for President Bush and fortunate for the roughly 135,000 U.S. troops stationed in Iraq. The bipartisan Baker/Hamilton commission is a direct result of Bush unflinchingly staying the course on his floundering policy for Iraq and the Middle East at large. Its report is refreshing because of the candor, competence and open-mindedness with which the commission members approached the Iraq mess — all qualities that some in the Bush administration seem to have lacked as the war has dragged on. You know, I've been doing a lot of Bush cartoons recently. Sure, he's the leader of the free world and there's been lots going on with him recently. Maybe I'm due for drawing a cartoon about Britney Spears. Think she's feeling left out?
