And the stupid white man is…

Congress has passed the new Post-9/11 Intelligence Bill (with the astounding margin of 336-75 in the House, and 89-2 in the Senate).
The policy issue at hand is not so much about what is included in the bill, and what kind of impact it will have on national security, but rather the fact that the 911 Commission, contrary to what many Democrats had hoped, turned out to produce a neatly packed program in the president's taste. (Even though, as some pundits noted, the new Republicans in Congress won't let Bush force them into ugly victories - like the Medicare restructuring agenda. Nevertheless, victories are still victories - no matter how ugly.)
So, after all of that we've seen and heard, The 9/11 Commission Report, and the new Intelligence Bill, all worked in favor for the president.

Somebody should give Michael Moore a call. A wake-up call.
