"As long as I am commander in chief"...

Is President Bush trying to tell us something? Today in South Korea, he said, "...as long as I am commander in chief, our strategy in Iraq will be driven by the sober judgment of our military commanders on the ground."

Wow. That's a lot of qualifiers. First, you have "as long as," which indicates that Bush actually acknowledges he is (a) removable and (b) replaceable.

Then you have "our" strategy in Iraq - meaning his and a minimum of just one other person's...far from a quorum.

Then you have "sober" judgment, which may be interpreted to mean judgment unimpaired by alcohol or drugs - which will be very hard to come by in the military.

And finally, there's (military commanders) "on the ground." Okay, so it's not up to the Air Force or the Navy to make the sober judgment, thank God. But that still leaves the Army and the Marines...Jesus.

But at least we can be thankful for one thing: Our strategy in Iraq isn't driven by the sober judgment of our commander in chief!
