READER'S DIGEST BLOGGING....Sick today. I tried to blog a bit but couldn't sustain the energy to write an entire post. This post on mad cow disease sounds about right to me, but who cares about cows? Glenn has some stupid/offensive posts up, but others are already doing a good job of skewering them. Ronald Brownstein says Democrats are in trouble because white males don't vote for them, but inexplicably doesn't bother talking about regional breakdowns. How about Southern white males vs. everyone else, Ron? (Besides, we all know that the real action is in the urban/rural divide anyway, right?)

Or if you want to read about Iraq, the LA Times has a good roundup of the "do it right" vs. "do it quick" folks in the administration:

Some in the administration "want to get Iraq right, and that group [needs] a longer time frame," said Brent Scowcroft, who served as national security advisor to former President George H.W. Bush. "At the other extreme, there are some whose goal is to get Iraq off the front pages by August."

....Said one person close to the process: "If we have something that vaguely looks like a government, and we don't have Americans dying every day, that would be a wild success."

Glad to see we're setting our democracy promotion sights so high.

That's it for today. Back tomorrow.
