    U.K. Minister Who Called Blair's Iraq Policy 'Reckless' Quits

    "LONDON -- A senior minister who called Prime Minister Tony Blair's(search) policy on Iraq 'reckless', but clung to office through the war, resigned from the Cabinet on Monday, her office said.

    Clare Short's decision to step down as secretary for International Development followed a fresh controversy over her missing a critical House of Commons(search) vote last week on the government's new hospitals policy..."

    Now, I haven't been here long enough to know what any of you guys' political views are, but I am glad she quit!
    All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy...
    Think I'll lose my mind if I don't find something to pacify...

    I'd be willing to bet that "quit" in this situation was one of those circumstances where the constituency said, you can quit, or we can fire you.

    Well, kind of like a bunch of those Hollywood types who said they'd move out of the country if President Bush were elected (and they didn't), or that Jenine Garafalo or however she spells her name, said she'd bring roses to President Bush if the war ended quickly with few casualties. What a bunch of pansies.
