Surprise!

SURPRISE!….I have a wee request: Can we please stop treating as major news the unceasing “surprise” visits to the Middle East by various Bush administration luminaries? Rice does it, Rumsfeld does it, Cheney does it, Bush does it, and these things really aren’t much of a surprise anymore, are they? More like a transparent effort to get a headline from a gullible press corps. It’s time to wake up.
