Some demos on the committtee are kennedy, byrd, levin, and hillary.

There will be lots of grandstanding going on.

Looking forward to this. Rummy doesn't suffer fools lightly, and he'll slap 'em hard after he says
'sorry".

I'm glad I'm at work and won't be able to watch it. I think I'd smash my T.V. watching the lowlifes prancing for the cameras at Secretary Rumsfeld expense.

Rummy will suck them up with a smile and B'slap the perps.

Great entertainment! And, from probably the most experianced and smartest guy who has EVER been SOD.

In fact, he'll probably show up half in the bag.

I am sick of this whole thing. Zipping through the channels this morning, it is obvious to me that the press has forgotten which side we are at war against.

The dims will go after him with fangs bared. Rumsfeld cancelled a scheduled appearance to prep for this hearing. He did so to get his ducks in a row and his facts straight. When the dims have to testify, they prep to make sure their lies do not over lap.

That's the coolest thing about Donald Rumsfeld. He doesn't really ever lose his cool. He can get cooler. He can get so cool he can be outright cold. But he doesn't lose the cool.

You can write to anybody you want. I think the President was correct to apologize for the abuse. It was wrong, should not have happened, and should never happen again.

The issue is whether "apologize" is equivalent to "give up." On that note, I see that our guys killed 40 salamikazes the other day in Najaf.

I sent a heated email to my congressman this morning, and had to basically copy and paste to a word document. I was sooooooo mad, I couldn't type properly. My Senators are getting a similar email today. This makes me sick to my stomach.

Darn, I have a lunch appointment today so I will have to catch up here. I think he appears again later in the day in front of the House.

My prayers are with Rumsfeld. It's not just that the questioning will be tough, they will be disrespectful, self righteous, belittling creeps.

As long as the dims are on this apologizing one-note, I'd like to hear the Tower widders demanding that Jamie Gorelick for hogtying the FBI and CIA so much that terrorists killed their husbands and 3000 others.
