While the nation is shocked – shocked, I say – at John Kerry botching a joke, this direct and intended comment from the number two Republican in the House goes unnoticed.

House Majority Leader John Boehner: Wolf, I understand that, but let’s not blame what’s happening in Iraq on Rumsfeld.

Wolf Blitzer: But he’s in charge of the military.

House Majority Leader John Boehner: But the fact is the generals on the ground are in charge and he works closely with them and the President.

Well, at least we finally know who to blame for the mess in Iraq. It’s not the President, and it’s not the Secretary of Defense.

Nope, it’s the Generals. Nothing like throwing the troops under the bus, right?
