I am sure I am violating some code of blogger ethics, but I'm going to reprint Josh Marshall's entire "Mission Accomplished" text from today:
Yes, three years ago today, President Bush declared Mission Accomplished in Iraq.
I think this will go down as the symbol of the Bush administration -- like Carter's malaise speech, Bush's father with the carton of milk, LBJ falling on his metaphorical sword in a nationally televised address. It captures everything. The arrogance. The dingbat personality cult. The fleeting triumph of Potemkin stagecraft over tangible accomplishment. The happy willingness to let others take care of the president's messes.
Today the president hailed yet another "turning point" in Iraq but warned of "more tough days ahead."
