Before I get to the grades, let me give a shout out to Mark Kilmer of Red State, who is in the habit of providing detailed summaries of the Sunday morning talk shows. (Hat tip: MD) Moreover, in addition to the Big Three, he covers Fox News Sunday and CNN Late Edition. (Although if they did podcasts, I might cover them, too.)
So here goes:
Gen. Pace: B-. Pace did a competent job of saying what he had to say on the Pentagon's behalf. But I think it was a very poor decision to say that flagging public support for the war is a result of bad news coverage. I've criticized that coverage quite often myself. But the bottom line is that Americans just can't get behind a war in which their soldiers have to die one at a time, day after day, for almost three years, without the prospect of a decisive military victory.Not a good week, eh? Or perhaps I've just decided to be stingy after giving out so many high grades last time around? Anyhow, here are the hosts:
Tim Russert: B. When you have the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on your show, you should try to get out some new information about our military effort.See you in seven. (1) opinions -- Add your opinion
Reading your synoposis of Murtha, how did he manage a "C"?Post a Comment
Even assuming an "F" requires that you burst a blood vessel and die while arguing that GWB's environmental policies directly caused Hurricane Katrina, how did he not get at least a "D+"?
