George Bush's Wag the Dog Moment

George Bush's polls are the lowest that they have ever been, you have John Conyers holding impeachment forums in the House and Russ Feingold talking about Censuring the President in the Senate. What should a neo-con do? Start dropping bombs?

Yesterday the US launched one of it's largest offensives since the beginning of the war in 2003. More than 50 aircraft and 1,500 soldiers took part in the operation.

Is this Bush's "wag the dog" moment?

Does anyone remember when Republicans were trying to impeach Clinton and he launched a very small military operation? I believe only a few cruise missles were used that time. "No war for Monica" was the chant from the rabid right wing.

My, my, my, how times change and roles reverse themselves.
