-- If the Bay State senators could hang an ornament on the Pentagon Christmas tree, it would be pink.
A pink slip, that is, for Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.
Democratic Senators Edward Kennedy and John Kerry called for Rumsfeld's resignation last week, following a speech at John Hopkins University in which Rumsfeld defended the war in Iraq and critiqued the mainstream media's war coverage.
"We've arrived at a strange time in this country where the worst about America and our military seems to so quickly be taken as truth by the press," Rumsfeld said.
As an example, Rumsfeld later pointed to stories revealing a Pentagon program that reportedly paid a contractor to pay Iraqi newspapers to print positive stories about the U.S. effort in Iraq. The stories apparently were written by the contractors and published as news.
"That story has been pounded in the media," Rumsfeld said. "And the problem is the story goes out all over the world, over and over and over again. And we're still trying to find out what the facts are."
The senators, though, seemed more apt to believe the press than Rumsfeld.
"We need a fresh start at the Pentagon for the good of American troops, so brave Americans stop paying the terrible price of this defense secretary's mistakes," Kerry said.

That's a good argument for his staying.
Surprise....Surprise...Surprise....idiots from Mass at it again....
Lol. Who cares what they want?
The last time Teddy 'called' for something it was LAST CALL!
Note Kerry's last line in the snippet. Translation: It's time to run away from Iraq. What a putz.
I am so glad that "Chubby Chops" and "Candle-Face(Laura's term) weren't born in time for the American Revolution.
HAHAHAHAHHAHHa...they should resign...and there's actually valid reason for them to.
This is a job for Captain Obvious.
White Flag Democrats!
Are we sure that date is right?
Seems that we have heard this, I don't know, like 4,567,333 times before BY THE SAME GUYS.
Yeah, that date must be a misprint.
Rummy MUST be doing a great job then!!!
I SO look forward to the day Kennedy and Kerry are no longer in the Senate. Just to call them Has-Beens. Oh wait, they already are!!!
HAHAHAAHHAHA bawahahaha!!! *Pointing at the Senators* ROFL!
The twin idiots of Kennedy and Kerry... working for a better future... for terrorists.
When will Kennedy the car dunker and Kerry the 'global testee' resign?
Prairiebreeze is calling for the immediate resignations of BOTH Massachusettes senators too.
My suggestion has much more basis and reasoning than theirs does.
Why don't the two idiots take time from trying to run a presidency neither is qualified or elected to do and go hold hands with Tookie as they fry him.
Kennedy/Kerry - what a couple of Klowns ... these two are the only thing worse than my two senators in California.
And Rumsfeld called for Democratic Senators Edward Kennedy and John Kerry's resignation.
