Democrats thought they were so clever to wait until today to present the 'cut and run' military spending bill to the President for his inevitable veto.  Evidently, they're so fixated on the infamous "Mission Accomplished" banner behind the presidential podium four years ago that they just had to try and embarrass President Bush on the fourth anniversary of that speech and banner.

But today is starting out a bit differently, isn't it?  Headlines are screaming that the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Ayyub al-Masri has been killed.

At the time of this writing, the U.S. has yet to officially confirm it, but the reports seem to suggest it's true.

If so, this must be a really awful turn of events for the Pelosi/Reid dems who wanted to run President Bush's nose in the 'Mission Accomplished" event.  It's mighty hard to argue that we're not making any progress in Iraq when something like that occurs, eh?

What is it they say about karma?
