If you're curious about the details of Bush's escalation—sorry, "surge"—in Iraq, The Drudge Report has posted his speech.

On a related note: One establishment pundit, Newsweek's Jonathan Alter, thinks Chuck Hagel could lead an antiwar insurgency in the Republican primaries next year. Maybe I'm just engaging in a little wishful thinking here—Lord knows I'm not usually in the habit of linking to Jonathan Alter articles—but I'd love to see him pull a Eugene McCarthy on John McCain.
