Stateside with Rosalea: I Really Think So

Stateside with Rosalea

I Really Think So

What did the Japanese know, and when did they know it? That's my question.

I'm sorry, but doesn't the Saddam Hussein who came out of a mudhole look like a prisoner to you? For all we know he was captured by the US months ago and kept there until the Bush administration judged the moment was politically right to announce they'd found him.

And why do I ask the question about Japan? Because that's where Al Gore was when he called Howard Dean out of the blue and said he was endorsing him for the presidential race. An endorsement that was so unlikely you only had to hold your breath for a week to find out why he did it. To force the Bush campaign's hand, making them play the trump card they had hoped to keep till it was time to knock some anit-war Democratic candidate out of the race.

Go Al!
