Season's Bleatings

I don't think the word "mixed" means what CNN thinks it means.

It's the best of times, it's the worst of times -- a tale of two legacies as President Bush prepares to ring in the final year of his presidency.

Sitting in the front row for Bush's final press conference of 2007 on Thursday, I was struck by how it's a mixed bag for the president on three key issues -- his relationship with the Democratic Congress, the state of the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the health of the U.S. economy.

Jay-zus. You know, it's great to get a hummer for Christmas, but it should be from your wife (or whatever), not some reporter assigned to Christmas kneepad duty. I mean seriously, how the hell are the three issues Henry puts forth in his own article perceived even charitably as a "mixed bag"? There's no way, pal -- there is no relationship between Bush and congressional Democrats; the economy is foundering; the war in Afghanistan is stalling, and the one in Iraq has temporarily normalized because Iran has told the Shiite militias to stand down for a while.

I honestly cannot figure out why this article needed to be written.
