More on the deal Sens. Carl Levin and John Warner have struck on a resolution opposing George W. Bush’s escalation of the war in Iraq: The Los Angeles Times reports that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid expects “near” unanimous approval from Democrats — and that Warner apparently hopes to pick up support from more Republicans with new clauses that oppose the cutting off of funds for the war and call on the government of Nouri al-Maliki to commit itself in writing to benchmarks for progress.
Appearing on Fox News Wednesday, the president reiterated his opposition to any anti-escalation resolution, saying: “My admonition to those who are speaking out is let us back the troops and let us hope for the success” of their mission.
And in an interview with the Wall Street Journal’s editorial board, Bush seemed to lay down a dare for members of the Senate: Defund the war or shut up about it. Asked whether he thought Congress has the power to cut off funding for the war, Bush said: “Oh yeah. They can say ‘We won’t fund.’ That is a constitutional authority of Congress.”

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
