Bye Bye Tony

Ok, is Vegas now giving odds on how long it will take Britain to pull out of Iraq altogether now that Tony "the puppet" Blair is stepping down?

Yes, he's a puppet, and his reputation is forever damaged by his (lap-)dogged support of the iraq fiasco. i was just listening to MP Glenda Jackson, who represents Highgate in London, express her free amazement that Blair chose that course. Ms. Jackson speaks for a lot of incredulous people here, too.

But I do think he gets a lot of the credit for the re-establishment of parliamentary government in northern ireland. blair made it a point to cultivate and befriend Ian Paisley, Mr. No of the Protestant side, and probably impressed upon him how negative his legacy would be if he chose not to cooperate. Just for that, I think "cool Tony" deserves to be called a peacemaker, and should get kudos.

If only Tony had been able to take tact in working things out between Sadaam and Bush. Oh wait, I forgot, nobody tells us what to do.

Bush isn't suffering too bad. He's sniffing around a genuine French poodle now.
