Oh what a tangled web we weave....

I'd be tempted to say the chicken are coming home to roost on the Bush administration, but with the dynamics of Washington it's entirely possible the chicken hawks will win.

Just how much do you think Colin Powell enjoyed teaming up with John McCain to stick it to the Bush administration's concept of a fall election strategy -- namely making the Democrats look weak on terrorism.

But McCain and Powell continue to show the occasional strains of courage that set them apart from the fear and smear wing of the Republican Party. And all that was necessary was to stand up for the Constitution, the Geneva Conventions and the rest of the civilized world.

But let's not get too giddy too soon. This is, after all, an administration that can deliver a highly politicized 9-11 commemoration speech -- as usual equating a difference of opinion with treason -- and blithely label it as mainstream.

Stay tuned.
