That well-known voice of liberalism, the Military Times Media Group, publisher of the ArmyTimes, NavyTimes, AirForceTimes, and MarineCorpsTimes, has issued an editorial calling for Rumsfeld and Myers to be relieved. What’s interesting to me about this editorial is the way that it uses military language to analyze the whole Abu Ghraib affair, using phrases like “failure of leadership” and “lack of situational awareness” to describe the performance of top military and civilian leaders.

In this article, I found the following gem from a Republican supporter of John Kerry. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t look favorably on comparisons between George W. Bush and Abraham Lincoln. In this one case, though, I’m willing to make an exception.
Not only that, [Terri Reed] said, but as president of Thomas Jefferson Butler Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, she is tired of the Bush administration claiming it stands for Southern values. In fact, Ms. Reed said, Mr. Bush reminds her of no one so much as a president who she said once betrayed the Constitution. “That’s right,” she said. “Abraham Lincoln.”
Sons and Daughters of the Confederacy for Kerry!
