Donald Rumsfeld steps down


Big news of the day, the man responsible for the clusterfuck in Iraq has finally taken a little responsiblity and quit his job. I hear they're hiring at McDonalds, try not to liberate the McNuggets.

Donald H. Rumsfeld (74) stepped down as U.S. Defence Secretary on Wednesday, one day after Congressional elections in which opposition to the war in Iraq contributed to heavy Republican party losses.

I wish this development would actually change things in Iraq but it will not.

Making the announcement at a press conference, U.S. President George W. Bush said he would nominate Robert Gates, a former Central Intelligence Agency director, to replace him.

Now the CIA's in the White House. Only a matter of time before I'm being tortured for downloading music on the internet.

Asked whether his announcement signalled a new direction in the war that has claimed the lives of more than 2,800 U.S. troops and thousands of Iraqis, Mr. Bush said, ``Well, there's certainly going to be new leadership at the Pentagon.''

Translation: Nope.

Mr. Bush lavished praise on Mr. Rumsfeld, who has spent six stormy years at the Pentagon.

Stormy? No, Hurricane Katrina was stormy. Rumsfeld was biblical.
