Political bits

Dan Bartlett claims sole responsibility for the Mission Accomplished banner, trying to ease responsibility for one of Bush's admitted "mistakes." (Funny. Did Bartlett also swagger onto the carrier and enthusiastically recite the line "major combat operations are over"?)

(WaPo/CNN) All the experts are predicting more GOP Senate trouble in the 2010 election. (Let's remember that the 2008 and 2010 Senators were elected in GOP high years 2002, 2004. By 2012, it'll come back around to where the Dems have to defend.)

(WaPo/FirstRead) The Bush folks and Obama folks are holding a joint/crossover terrorism preparedness exercise today. (Good for everyone.)

(Politico) It really does say alot about the state of the GOP that moderate GOPer Tom Davis' reasonable prescription from the party isn't even in the conversation.

(ThePage) Bush again tries to make his "good presidency" case, this time at a cabinet farewell meeting.

And, Dear Virginia, you can't possibly be serious about Terry McAuliffe as your next governor. Don't you remember how easily and enthusiastically he lied just back in the Clinton campaign? McAuliffe would lie about the sky being blue if he thought it would help him.
