On the Horns of a Conundrum

It is very unpleasant to have two people, who have each earned one's scorn, vehemently oppose one another.

It is very hard not to agree with Person A when he rants and raves against the parentage, upbringing and general moral character of Person B. But then one is agreeing with a person one has sworn to despise.

Such is the recent case of Senator Ted "Chappaquidick" Kennedy versus SecDef Donald 'The Duck" Rumsfeld. Kennedy, citing the rules of steroid-enhanced baseball concerning three strikes and you're out, called for Rumsfeld to resign over the Iraq messes. Rumsfeld replied that the President declined Rumsfeld's two previous offers of resignation; and Iraq ain't so bad, Senator.

On the one hand, the people of Massachusetts apparently only keep Kennedy in office so that we can all keep an eye on him. On the other, if Rumsfeld only tried to resign twice, maybe three times IS a charm. He is certainly worthy of the consideration.

I don't think that both of them should leave office. I think that both of them MUST leave office. Now.

    I heard that Ted Kennedy is so pickled from alcohol abuse that he sloshes when he walks.

    Brenda, that would be consistent with his ex-wife, who was found drunk on the streets and is now apparently in her children's custody. Too bad Ted doesn't also have the benefit of adult supervision.
