Tracky Tuesday

Posted By on Tue, Nov 13, 2007 at 8:30 AM

A gloomy, damp, cold morning in Burlington, Vermont. Perfect "Inside Track" writing weather, eh?

Lots on the political plate.

And the Christmas holidays are rolling in.

Rolling in against the backdrop of the ongoing crime in Iraq.

Please. Let's be honest. It's not a "war." Iraq did not attack us, nor was Iraq a threat to the United States of America. The U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq is a crime. Let's call it what it is.

And as with any crime, mes amis, it's not going to be okay until it's stopped and the perps - George W. Bush and Dick Cheney - are brought to justice.

How long before 9-10 GOP senators realize their loyalty to the Bush team is going to cost them their seats?

The clock ticks.

Politics is a painful process, but it still beats the alternatives.
