With eyes clutched tight and mind closed even tighter ...

Dana Milbank confirms once again that there are none so blind as those who will not see. In his story about the administration's response to slipping poll numbers on the war, he writes:
That's why Bush has scheduled his prime-time speech for tonight from Fort Bragg, and why Rumsfeld and his generals have given a flurry of interviews and public appearances over the past week. They've got a tough challenge: Because the administration has said there will be no change in the Iraq policy, the only rhetoric at its disposal is repetition of old arguments.

Actually Dana, the President has a very potent weapon at his disposal -- the truth. You ought to try to get better acquainted with it. In his speech tonight, I expect that W will lay out a great deal of information on the current events in Iraq which Dana's paper and the other propaganda organs of the Democratic Party have chosen to withhold from the American people.

The opinions of the American people are important. But their opinions are far more important once they are fully and accurately informed.
