DURST: Viable Within a Few Inches

It's funny. Well, unless you were taking a midnight stroll on a hill overlooking the Tigris River, then maybe it wasn't so funny. But the same arguments the pro and con impeachment forces are using, could be translated directly to the pro and con Saddam forces."Yes he did.""No he didn't.""He lied.""He parsed.""He's a weasel with no sense of shame.""Just trying to hold off the conspiracy against him.""You say tomato and I say tomahto. Let's call the whole thing off.""Boom!"The White House is calling the strike on Iraq, "Desert Fox", which, correct me if I'm wrong, was the name the Allies gave to Rommel during WWII, aka, the Big One. Of course, Clinton, also aka, the Big One, might as well have called it "Smoke and Mirrors" for all the good it did. Trent Lott, who apparently mislaid the "close ranks in time of war" memo said that Clinton was trying to distract America by a timely bombing. Although, right now, I don't think America would put up much of fight if Clinton decided to launch Tomahawk Missiles at the Republican side of Congress. After all, they're viable within a few inches aren't they?Will Durst only wishes Congress was viable within a few inches.
