The Moose Weighs In

Marshall Wittman has a fabulous post on the Secretary of Defense. Here's a bit:

"Donald Rumsfeld has accomplished something no government official has achieved. Rummy has brought the country together. He is truly a uniter and not a divider.

Republican and Democrat. Conservative and Liberal. Civilian and Military. Red State and Blue State. All together.

America is agreed. We are a united nation.

There is a national consensus - Donald Rumsfeld must go.

It appears that there are only two holdouts on this national consensus - Donald Rumsfeld and George W. Bush. It is a curious moment. The Administration is in a free fall and yet the President is refusing to take dramatic action. Is W. engaged in a perverse competition with Richard Nixon for which President can achieve the lowest popularity numbers?"

Needless to say, read the whole thing!

The official line is that Bush isn't going to dump Rummy because it would be an admission of defeat. I don't think that's the reason Bush is standing by the guy. Au contraire; Rummy knows where the bodies are buried, and that's why Bush isn't going to sack him.
