Donald Rumsfeld Falls on the Sword

FOX/AP is reporting that Donald Rumsfeld is stepping down as Secretary of Defense.

One of the few gentlemen left in Washington, Rumsfeld tried to take on the Dragon of Washington and its defense spending based more upon what congresscritters can "get" for their districts rather than what is needed to defend us from our enemies. He is a gracious man, so far above his enemies that it is a shame that it had to end this way, but alas...

I thank him for his service.

So when John Kerry votes for cost cutting measures that Dick Cheney was also in favor of he's against the troops but when Rummy does it he's a true gentleman.

Two parties two standards I guess, no wonder the Neo-Conman party lost.
