A Colorado blogger with whom I have only recently become familiar – Randy Ketner, aka the Night Twister – has put together a post you must read. He hit the nail on the head with ironic precision, comparing the Congressional Democrats’ complaints about the lack of political progress in Iraq with their own lack of progress in meeting legislative benchmarks.
You need to read the whole thing, but here’s a clip to whet your appetite:
Well, there you have it. A fair comparison of the legislative progress by the Iraqi and our own Legislatures. Hereâ€™s the scorecard:
U.S. Congress: 0 completed, 1 partially completed, 6 not completed.
Iraqi Government: 4 completed, 2 partially completed, 1 not completed.
It should be noted that for the Iraqi Government, these benchmarks were dictated to them. For our own Congress, they were selected by the very leaders that have failed to carry them out.
Iâ€™m starting to agree that the cut-and-run strategy may be the best choice, but only from the legislative body that has failed to meet any of their benchmarks.
This post opens up a rich world of commentary, from serious to satire. Bookmark the Night Twister, whom I look forward to meeting at Samsphere Denver.
