Comments: Get over it.

On a slight tangent to your point, one of the ways we learned to look at the situation in the Marine Corps was to view the chain of command as a totem pole. The person at the top has the best view, and in the most responsible for balancing the whole act. The guy at the bottom is the one who has all the weight of the tower on him, so must be the strongest. This was given to us in a Leadership class. The point? The guy at the top better make DAMN sure the guy on the bottom is happy and knows what he's supposed to do, because if he doesn't, the guy at the top is gonna take a LONG fall, because of something he did not see, or have any control over.

The moral of the story, as related to us, was that the guy at the bottom of the totem pole can make life FAR more miserable for the guy at the top, than the obverse. Sec. Rumsfeld is, unfortunately for him, very near the top of the totem pole. He can't see the bottom of the totem pole, because there are FAR too many people between him and the bottom. But, I trust his sense of balance to keep the totem pole upright and working.

I don't know. Dave Thomas finally had to get an unlisted number because of all the times I didn't like they way they cooked my single.

Ok, I just made that up. But Biggie fries were my idea, just that I never went around to telling anyone before he came up with it too.

If you seem them offer a quadruple or quintuple, yeah, that was probably thought of by me first. There, I just thought of it.

Examples of Robert McClelland's Attitudes toward Persons who Do Not Share his Political Beliefs

I am an anal sphincter awaiting the none-too-tender ministrations of your Cluebat™ without the benefit of Astroglide™ or spittle.

Robert McClelland is an intellectual bigot who's biases and attacks on people based on political affiliation will not be tolerated on this blog.

If and when he decides to enter the dialogue responsibly and with some reasonable amount of civility, he will be tolerated.

Until that time, however, Robert McClelland is strongly encouraged to return to the land of thoughtless reactionary Moonbattery™ and refrain from leaving his intellect-free spoor in comments here.

Well, like every other possible concept, politics is going way-to-far here. I like the analogy of both fast-food and the totem pole. But until people drop the partisan mantles they keep wrapping themselves in, this kind of skullduggery is going to continue.

Yes, I did use skullduggery correctly. The folks that want to take down Rummy are misrepresenting his role to take advantage of our vote.

Nice how the 'bat doesn't have comments enabled on his blog. His post on the topic was nauseating. Textbook borderline.
