Lady G, you’re right that there are important dimensions to this flareup that go beyond whether or not the deal is “by the book.” The White House should have grasped the political implications, and, of course, should have been aware of the deal in order to so grasp. The air-ball on this is so profound that now we have to contemplate a Bush veto on Republican-sponored legislation, with support running from Frist on down to Ehrlich — and with Sen. Clinton looming over everything, cackling.

Who wouldn’t cackle? Even if the UAE deserves every dollar of that contract, even if the UAE would execute their obligations with every ounce of due diligence, the political price to be paid for not having “gotten out front” is mindbogglingly needless. It’s the difference between a missed layup and the subsequent turnover for three. This kind of accidental craziness I cannot abide. There is room for one March Madness on my calendar this year, and Redick has a lock on it.
