"Rummy, You're Doin' a Heckuva Job"

In a move that reminds The Peach how Iraq has reached Katrina-like catastrophic levels, Bush, after insisting that he is no longer "staying the course," has in fact solidified his "stay the course" intentions by announcing that "Rummy" Rumsfeld will be staying on as Defense Secretary till the end of Bush's term. This even after a number of Republicans running for office have stated that if elected they would ask for Rumsfeld's resignation.

In the meantime, an official U.S. military chart listed Iraq as "descending into chaos." Bush, in his usual brain-dead fashion, dismissed the chart as "one of those mysterious charts that somehow appear" and that ultimately "we are winning" in Iraq. The Peach can only wonder if the number of soldiers killed is also some "mysterious" number that Bush dismisses.
