It is worth noting that today's session was mainly about a plan for withdrawal from an occupation which is disapproved by citizens of the occupying country as well as those of the occupied country. But neither the Democratic leadership nor the Republican Administration perceive a political benefit to themselves from a quick exit. So they talk about timetables and drawdown and leave it to their operatives to spin the analysis to their advantage.
I found my way there because Kevin Drum says it's one of the funniest blogs and I wanted a laugh.
Myself, I think you need a pretty bleak sense of humor to find this funny.
