Saturday's snark attacks-- Seattle P-I -- good ones
Today's "Snark Attack_ -- one- or two-sentence swipes at politics and politicians by the P-I editorial page editors published on Saturday's op-ed page-- includes the following by Thomas Shapley:

<snip>
Perhaps emulating their commander in chief when he was about their age, more than a dozen U.S. troops have turned up AWOL -- having failed to return from their two-week rest & relaxation break from the war in Iraq. From May 1, 1972, until April 30, 1973 -- Bush reportedly failed to show up for duty in the Texas Air National Guard.

and

A recent poll shows that President Bush has more support -- about 10 points higher -- among college students than the general public. There's a quick cure for that: Reinstate the draft.

It also includes this "Rummy of the Week"

The chairman of the Senate Armed Services, Sen. John Warner, R-Va., and his top Democratic colleague wrote a private letter to the defense secretary to express concerns about anti-Muslim remarks by a top officer. Not getting any response, Warner made the letter public. Still, Donald Rumsfeld told reporters, "It may be somewhere around the building. I'm not aware of it."

Good ones!
