Sunday mornings the Engineer and I work out together, and spend an amiable quarter hour pedaling the bikes that inevitably face a rank of televisions, at that day and hour infested with talking heads. A banner at the bottom of one screen made it clear that the discussion involved Obama’s announcement that no we’re not leaving Afghanistan just yet, everyone chewing it to death in traditional round-table style, and the closed caption helpfully told us that one participant had just opined:
Obama is running into the same problems that bedeviled Al Sanders the Great.
Hell of a guy, that Sanders. Probably no relationship to Bernie. Just guessin’.
