"For us let it be enough to know ourselves to be in the place where God wants us, and carry on our work, even though it be no more than the work of an ant, infinitesimally small, and with unforeseeable results."

Irreverent Observation of the Day
I was watching CNN yesterday when Wolf Blitzer said something that caused a "eureka moment" for me. Referring to World Bank leader Wolfowitz, he said, "Bush stands by his man."
Now I know who Bush really is. He claims to be "The Decider." He refers to himself as "The Commander Guy." But in reality he's the Tammy Wynette of the White House. He stood by "Brownie." He stood by Rumsfeld. He stood by Libby. He stands by Gonzales. Now he stands by Wolfowitz. Bush stands by his man.
(Unlike another politician who denied that she was a "Tammy Wynette stand by your man woman" and then stood by her man during very hard times, Bush proclaims his loyalty to his men and then cuts them adrift to face their fate.)
