Caution: Right wing heads may explode due to crumbling narrative.

From TPM:

Late last week, one of the politicals at the Bush Pentagon, spokesman Bryan Whitman tried to stick his thumb into the ongoing presidential campaign by publicly doubting the veracity of the anecdote Sen. Obama used about the Army Captain in Afghanistan in last weeks Democratic debate. "I find that account pretty hard to imagine," he told reporters after the debate.

Today Gen. George Casey, Chief of Staff of the Army, testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee with a very different take on the story.
From the AP ...

"Gen. George Casey, the Army's chief of staff, said Tuesday he has no reason to doubt Barack Obama's recent account by an Army captain that a rifle platoon in Afghanistan didn't have enough soldiers or weapons.

But he questioned the assertion that the shortages prevented the troops from doing their job.

Testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Casey said the incident would have occurred in 2003 and 2004 following the Iraq invasion. He said he remembers it as a "difficult time" trying to rush armor and other equipment to the troops."

Hi Mom!

You watched too? I wasn't planning to since I can pretty much recite all of their points by heart now but ended up watching anyway (for lack of anything else better).

I thought Hillary fell flat several times on her sarcasm and jabs. She looked flummoxed when Obama agreed with her on anything. And her "denounce" vs "reject" diatribe was just cosmic.

Feeling oh-so-much better -- really all that's left is the sniffles. I am hoping to have an enjoyable weekend (although I have to work the Friday night/Saturday morning window again, which I'm getting REALLY sick of).
