How funny is this?

How would you like to run a couple of wars? The job could be yours. President George W. Bush is trying to find what the media is calling a "war tsar" to manage the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, but so far hasn't found any takers. Now there's a surprise.

To date, he has asked three retired four-star generals and all have not so politely declined. General John J. Sheehan, shown in the accompanying picture, remarked, "The very fundamental issue is they don't know where the hell they're going." Sheehan mentioned Dick Cheney as an obstacle to taking the job.

So, if this sounds like your kind of thing, get your resume in. If, for example, you have experience running a peanut stand, you just may be a shoo-in. You certainly can't do any worse than Bush and Cheney.
