Call it a classic test of scheduling -- and spine -- for our Congressional leadership.

Buried in Tuesday's NYT article in which Carl Levin and John Warner jointly blamed President Maliki for our screw up Iraq, the following nugget appeared regarding the potential schedule for BushCo.'s progress report/sales pitch for perpetuating the Iraq campaign. The line in question reads: A White House spokesman said Monday that the Capitol Hill testimony could be expected on Sept. 11 or 12.

Eleventh OR twelfth, huh?

If, among all its layers of meaning, Art Spiegelman's haunting New Yorker cover from September 24, 2001 could be seen to suggested the number 11, would the Democrats actually be so submissively lame as to actually allow BushCo. to start hearings on that particular date?
