Welcome back

Maureen Dowd is back from her break with a vengeance. I'm sure there will be lots of linking to her column, "Why No Tea and Sympathy?"today. My favorite line, on Cindy Sheehan, the "Mom" who lost her son in Iraq, who is now camped outside Bush's ranch:

The Bush team tried to discredit "Mom" by pointing reporters to an old article in which she sounded kinder to W. If only her husband were an undercover C.I.A. operative, the Bushies could out him. But even if they send out a squad of Swift Boat Moms for Truth, there will be a countering Falluja Moms for Truth.

Love it that the wry humour and wit is back to be unleashed on W.
