So I guess now Rumsfeld's apologizing, too.
But meanwhile, right-wing commentators from The Wall Street Journal, Fox News, and elsewhere are blaming Hillary Clinton, feminists, liberal academics -- everyone but the people involved and the people responsible. (Media Matters for America provides excerpts, though, for the blaming of Hillary, you'll have to go here.)
Whether thought out or otherwise, we're seeing a two-track strategy from the GOP and the GOP-friendly media: The Bush administration embraced Bob Woodward's book while right-wing pundits attacked it; the Bush administration professes anguish at the torture photos while right-wing pundits laugh it off as "horseplay" or shift the blame.
If Bush's base actually agreed with Bush about Abu Ghraib, there'd be howls of outrage at the shrugging off of the torture in the right-wing press. But Bush's hardcore supporters know the drill: Bush & Co. have to seem contrite, but really, this is no big deal.
