Han Solo Was Right

There’s a scene in Star Wars (the episode that came out in 1977…what is that, Episode IV?) where Luke, Han, and Leia have all ended up in the bottom of what turns out to be a huge trash compactor. Han is not impressed with Luke’s leadership so far, and says so. Luke retorts, “It could be worse.” At that moment, the trash compactor kicks in, and the walls start to close in. Han replies, “It’s worse!”

Just recast that little scenario with members of the Bush cabinet (Condi as Leia?) and you have the current situation in the White House with the Iraqi prison scandal. And as Rummy said, it’s going to get worse before it gets better.
