Quick Notes

Josh Marshall has conveniently picked up on a NYT piece from yesterday, thus sparing me the trouble of commenting on the more shameless political dimensions of Bush's recent visit to the Pope. The telling note: Bush's reported complaint that "not all the American bishops are with me" on cultural issues.

Also from yesterday is this tasty little item from the LA Times: "Retired Officials Say Bush Must Go"
A group of 26 former senior diplomats and military officials, several appointed to key positions by Republican Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, plans to issue a joint statement this week arguing that President George W. Bush has damaged America's national security and should be defeated in November.


Those signing the document, which will be released in Washington on Wednesday, include 20 former U.S. ambassadors, appointed by presidents of both parties, to countries including Israel, the former Soviet Union and Saudi Arabia.

It looks like we're in for another interesting week....
