I am utterly perplexed why this happened NOW instead of 2 months ago — at least from a political perspective.

The WSJ polled readers, asking:  How would you grade Rumsfeld’s performance as defense secretary? [1]

The amazing thing is that 23% of those polled gave Rumsfeld  an "A" or a "B." I guess all that talk about personal responsiblility was just so much more ideological bullshit . . .
