Rummy on the outs 

So at long last, the White House has recognized that it's time to get Rumsfeld out of the Iraq/Afghanistan planning. The White House is pitching it as a reorganization for the next phase of the conflict, but the Times has it right (though they bury the lead):
"Inside the State Department and in some offices in the White House, the decision to create the stabilization group has been interpreted as a direct effort to diminish the authority of the Pentagon and Mr. Rumsfeld in the next phase of the occupation. Senior White House officials denied that was the case, and said in interviews on Sunday that the idea had been created by members of the National Security Council and embraced by Mr. Rumsfeld, who has been a lightning rod for criticism about poor postwar planning."
About time.

Cowboy Up 

This is the year.
Isn't it great when a different team chokes, for a change?
Pedro vs. Zito tomorrow. It's on.
