Rummy on last legs?

Embattled Defense Secretary Don Rumsfeld is catching hell from the unlikeliest of places: other Republicans.

GOP Senators Trent Lott, John McCain, and Olympia Snowe (okay, she's a RINO) are expressing no confidence in Rummy and are advocating a change in leadership at that position. Full story here.

I like the guy. He speaks condescendingly to the Washington press corps, so he's alright in my book. But if he's going to be a liability to Bush, then Bush ought to consider allowing Rummy to "resign."

Then again, Bush is in his second (and final) term, so screw the detractors...even if they're from his own party!
