Is everybody going crazy--or is it I?

Let's see: (1) Within twenty-four hours General Clark, the latest of the now-ten dwarfs, flip-flops on his position on voting to authorize war against Iraq. (2) Bush, after months of lies, admits there never existed any evidence that Saddam Hussein was responsible for the 9/11 attacks (not, mind you, that he's recently learned there was no such evidence, but that it never existed) and most of the dailies treat his disclosure as a nonevent, relegating it to their back pages, if reporting it at all. (3) Our troops mistakenly fire at an Italian functionary in Baghdad and kill his interpreter because their car didn't stop quick enough when ordered. (4) The attacks on our troops increase, always increase. and (5) The "military vote," that--in Florida, certainly--provided Bush's margin for victory in 2000, is turning against Bush.
All this stuff is driving me crazy. My only solace: It's driving Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Powell/Rice even crazier.
