Just when you thought things were changing, now we have an Aggie in charge of the Defense Department? Oh great. The NYT reports that: “Task No. 1 is to generate the strategy for victory in Iraq."
I have a feeling that may actually end up being task number six. Other important tasks the new Secretary of Defense may try to accomplish first:
-Preventing people from walking on the grass.
-Setting up a giant bonfire in the Pentagon parking lot.
-Forcing everyone to give the Gig 'Em sign when saying "Howdy." Push-ups as punishment if the rule is not followed.
-No girls in the Pentagon! Like the A&M football field, it is holy territory.
-And, of course, new officials must put a ring in a pitcher of beer and chug it all to be part of the inner circle.
Then Mr. Gates will deal with that pesky war.
