Today's bird is an eastern wood-peewee. Thought the name of this little fellow was particularly appropriate for what a lot of the discussion this morning is likely to be about, with Tom Reynolds on the guest list for This Week and Tony Perkins and Laura Ingraham on Fox, and Pat Buchanan on CNN and all.
Given that yesterday was the five year anniversary of the start of American operations in Afghanistan, and Sen. John Warner's pronouncement of things tanking in Iraq, and the whole Foley mess, and the new piss poor poll numbers for George Bush and the Republican party…well, it ought to be an interesting morning of spin.
