The Washington Post’s Al Kamen reflects on just what President Bush was thinking of when asked, Monday, about O’Neill’s accusation of an early 2001 Iraq push.
Bush said:

We were dealing with Desert Badger or flyovers and fly-betweens and looks, and we were fashioning policy along those lines.

Desert Badger?
Just what was Mr. Bush thinking?
Kamen offers suggestions with the most likely:

He's confusing his foxes and his badgers -- Operation Desert Fox was the name for a four-day bombing campaign.

But, the Totem Project offers what could be other possibilities:

Badger medicine is a tough one to carry…it can result in a sad, lonely and alone life…Badger out of control is feared and hated. He is the dictator. He speaks with no concern for the feelings of others. He is concerned only with his personal views and his own welfare. If badger perceives a wrong has been done him, he will follow you to the ends of the earth to get his revenge. If he gets a grip on you, or gets you cornered, he will tear you to shreds. There is no mercy in badger for he cares for no one except himself. Badger is the power monger; the control freak. He is the mark of aggressiveness carried to the extreme.

Kamen's always interesting column also has some information on Don Rumfeld's multiple, pricey dwellings...anyone care to relax at Rummy's Bed & Breakfast?
