“A HIGHER POWER”….Several people today have highlighted recent reports that Bush family fixer James A. Baker III has been shuttling in and out of Baghdad for the past few weeks, apparently hoping to find some kind of face-saving Iraq exit strategy for the current occupant of the Oval Office. See here and here, for example.

But guess what? Subscribers to the Washington Monthly already knew all about this, because we had the story in last month’s issue. You can read it here.

But this stuff doesn’t come cheap! In addition to paying me, the Monthly also has to pay its writers, its editors, its printers, and the U.S. Postal Service. Everyone but our interns, in fact. And you know what that means, don’t you? It means that if you like what you read here but you haven’t tossed a few bucks our way during our fundraising drive this week, it’s time to do it now. Just click the ad (or click here) which takes you to a page that allows you to write a check or donate online.
