Good to know I'm not the only one

There are a bunch of Army generals demanding that Rumsfeld resign. They should know.
Me, I am only an outraged citizen, but they fought that war and hate that man's guts for very good reasons:

A fifth retired general, Major Gen. John Riggs, added his voice to those opposing Rumsfeld. In an interview with National Public Radio, Riggs cited an atmosphere of "arrogance" among top civilian leaders at the Pentagon.
Rumsfeld "should step aside and let someone step in who can be more realistic," he said. Of the Pentagon's civilian leadership, Riggs said: "They only need the military advice when it satisfies their agenda. I think that's a mistake, and that's why I think he should resign."Retired Marine Corps Gen. Anthony Zinni kept up the pressure for Rumsfeld's scalp by telling CNN Rumsfeld should be held accountable for a series of blunders, starting with "throwing away 10 years worth of planning, plans that had taken into account what we would face in an occupation of Iraq".

However, Bush, who is either pathologically loyal or completely out to lunch, will not hear any of it. I guess if they don't listen to the generals, they won't listen to poor little me, either.
