Speed kills

Punctilious recalls some dates:

1776 Declaration of Independence
1783 Treaty of Paris Signed
1787 Constitutional Convention
1788 George Washington Elected

The NYT has given them nearly three months and the Iraqis still have not gone from liberation to fully functioning democracy. Must be a quagmire.

Yup. Waist-deep in the Big Sandy.

(Oh, and George Washington, or, as his friends called him, George W., was actually first elected in 1789, which fact actually amplifies the point.)
