Stay the course!

As Ben Franklin (or was it Einstein? Or my dad?) famously said, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." July saw more Iraqis die than any other month since Bush launched this war 3-1/2 years ago. A breakdown of the deadliest-month figures:

During the month, 3,438 Iraqis were killed -- 1,855 because of sectarian or political violence and another 1,583 from bombings and shootings. Nearly 3,600 Iraqis were wounded, the official said.

The release of these figures comes on the heels of a U.N. report that said nearly 6,000 people were killed in Iraq in May and June.

If Bush is of sound mind, he'd change this failed policy, somehow.

Of course, Bush is the president who thinks it's "naive" that he should have to kowtow to the Constitution.
