I think the Note has finally found its intellectual level:
A is for al Qaeda, which remains the problem (still).
B is for Bush, the biggest speech of his life (again).
C is for “cut and run,” which one doesn’t hear much any more.
D is for David Rogers, Dow Jonesing for Rep. Murtha’s secret plan to end the war.
E is for endgame, which this just might be.
