Back in Libya...

What the hades is going on there now other than random collateral damage? Are we still engaged in any way? Is Quedaffy dead yet or in the Hague? The Times tries to explain:
“We haven’t had a significant military operation in which the Americans have taken a back seat for quite some time,” said Malcolm Chalmers, a professor of defense at King’s College London, according to The Associated Press. “It really is unclear whether the Europeans can rise to that challenge.”
Doesn't really sound like "winning!" yet. And good golly, what's the fate of al-Megrahi? Is he still near death? So many questions, but the media seems to have abandoned the fight along with the president.

Guess we'll just have to settle for an interview with a regime rape victim. Kind of makes Pelosi's shutdown rhetoric a bit hollow, eh? More like damnable, actually.


The hell with Gaddafi, the liberals have apparently won the war on women, stopping Boehner from bombing them with abortion cuts and other unmentionables. Thank heaven.

More.. Jennifer Rubin thinks Boehner may have won this battle. The question is how the rest of the media will spin it, and what will Jon Stewart say.

The spin seems to be that Boehner won, but he did not win with TEA Party folks. What consequences will he suffer? Probably none.

Right Truth

The Tea Party has to understand what's possible in the congressional environment. I think most of them do and are skeptical that Boehner is much different than the others up there. But some TP folks want scorched earth, and it just won't work--the liberals found that out under Bush between 2006 and 2008.
