Rumsfeld's Big Success

Donny Rumsfeld has decided to creep back into the light by talking to the press the other day. He wanted to let us know that he thinks Afghanistan is a "big success" (even Donny has to admit that Iraq, well, not so much - but he blames that on the Iraqi government, not his ham-fisted leadership).

Rummy says that in Afghanistan "28 million people are free. They have their own president, they have their own parliament." He doesn't seem to count the fact that Afghanistan is the leader in opium / heroin production for the world as one of those big successes, but hey, I'm sure he's thinking it.

The parts of his GQ interview that you're probably more familiar with are the fun lines about Bush - that he doesn't know when he last spoke to the prez, and when asked if he misses him, replied, "um, no." He did say that he's still in contact with Darth Cheney. Big surprise there. But my favorite line from Rumsfeld's ramblings? That he believes Bush is "a lot more intelligent and curious than people give him credit for."

Curious George? Apparently as intelligent as the monkey? Well, maybe in Rummy's world.

Success? Rummy's been smoking the weed he found at W's ranch, huh?
