And boy, are my arms tired

If you really, truly have a problem with Donald Rumsfeld's use of the autopen, a device which dates back sixty freaking years now, you need to read this from Connie du Toit.

And then, because it's a kindness to slake his blogthirst, you need to read Sean Gleeson's list of Rumsfeld's other high crimes and misdemeanors.

Ya know, I really enjoy your posts, but the thing that I admire most are the wide range of references that your titles encompass.

Could it be that Rumsfeld secretly suffers from severe arthritis?

"Wide range" can also be seen as "desperately clutching for relevance," especially if you recognized this title as coming from a joke so old Henny Youngman wouldn't have touched it.

As to whether Rummy is afflicted with bad joints, a situation I know all too well, I'm disinclined to speculate, but at his age, it wouldn't be especially surprising.
