Condoleeza Rice.

So on August 21, four days before the start of the Democratic National Convention, Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice says the United States and Iraq have agreed that timetables should be set for U.S. troop withdrawl from the wartorn country, and major news agencies are reporting the target as 2011 -- a little later than either Barack Obama or the Iraqi government would prefer, but in the ballpark.

Oh yeah: I also think professional wrestling is totally on the level. Glad to have finally gotten that off my chest. -- Michael Roberts
