John McLaughlin over the weekend:
MR. MCLAUGHLIN: If the war continues in the direction it's going -- and we'll get to this in another discussion at another issue later in the program -- if there is an embarrassment, a serious embarrassment by reason of deviation of funds, it could also perhaps move in --
CNN today:
Bills weighing a total of 363 tons were loaded onto military aircraft in the largest cash shipments ever made by the Federal Reserve, said Rep. Henry Waxman, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
Democrats led by Waxman also questioned whether the lack of oversight of $12 billion in Iraqi money that was disbursed by Bremer and the CPA somehow enabled insurgents to get their hands on the funds, possibly through falsifying names on the government payroll.
Sometimes, watching politics is like watching a train wreck. Or a hockey fight. You know something bad is going to happen, but you just can't, for the life of you, turn away.

And sometimes you just make popcorn, because when something is finally released, particularly when you've been waiting years for it to come out, you just have to sit and watch it a few times.

I think I'm going to need more popcorn.
