Sauron: Saruman is 'doing a great job'

You go to war with the wizard you have

Speaking for the president, Scott McClellan yesterday voiced the administration's support for Donald Rumsfeld, which is tantamount to Sauron saying, "Saruman is the Saru-MAN!"

"Secretary Rumsfeld is doing a great job leading our efforts at the Department of Defense to win the war on terrorism and to help bring about a free and peaceful Iraq, and the president is focused on working closely with him on those matters," McClellan said.

So as Rumsfeld incants over a Palantir swirling with visions of amputees and Geneva Accords violations, the beady but fiery "Eye of Dubya" will be watching and scheming along with the despotic Secretary.
