The Domesticated President
The way Froomkin's column appeared on my browser today:

No comment.

Right up there with Daryn Kagan:
I'm being told now we have Lieutenant Colonel Jordan Jones at Camp Liberty in Baghdad on the phone. You may be wondering, in the middle of Hurricane Katrina, why we would go to Baghdad to do this interview. But there's an interesting twist. Lieutenant Colonel Jordan Jones is actually the commander of the 101st Battalion, 256th Louisiana Brigade. And he and his men and women are set to come home in eight days from Baghdad.
And, Colonel, I'm curious, you're coming from this war on terrorism in Baghdad, back home to Louisiana, where you see what's happening here to Americans. And I'm curious if you're going to have to get right back into a different kind of fight once you're home in eight days. [emphasis added]

Oh, and we weren't wondering:

The moment you said "in Baghdad on the phone" we knew.

Cutting It Short

That's what we have the WP Editorial Page for.

The theme music seems to have been lifted right off the soundtrack of Bourne Identity.

Anyone else notice that?

Correcting punctuation at Starbucks has to be one of the most anal things I've done in a while; but wouldn't you do the same if you were standing just a foot away from an incredibly irritating dot of chalk for an apostrophe that you could obliterate with the touch of a finger, thereby rescuing the homonym?

Greetings to Kevin Drum.
