Watching the Watchers

Some troops on active duty are using the rules to speak out against the war in Iraq. This is probably a very bad sign for the administration as is seems increasingly likely that the results of the Iraq war will be the opposite of what they had hoped. In a similar vein, one poll shows that our allies over in the U.K. think that the U.S. President is a greater threat to world peace than the North Korean dictator.

The head of the Government Accountability Office (now there's an office that has no power) is calling the government to task about their spending habits. Is this further fuel for those worried about the collapse of the middle class and the end of the U.S. as an economic power or just hyperbolic bluster?

And good grief, I agree with something Al Sharpton is saying. He blames the "Christian Right" for putting too much emphasis on sexual morality issues while neglecting stuff the church should really be dealing with.
