    LONDON - Prime Minister Tony Blair promised Thursday to resign within a year, hoping to appease critics in his governing Labour Party who are calling for his resignation by revealing a time frame.

It's almost stating the obvious to say once Parliment started toying with a no-confidence that it was the beginning of the end. Especially now that he's fighting with Labour as much as he is the opposition at this point. But since they're now afraid of having to run for political cover that they decided it would be better to cut their losses instead, which I get, which resulted in Blair having to fall on his own sword in the name of everything in the name of the party that hasn't worked.

It's Suntory Time!

Looks like Blair unveiled an exit strategy and timetable for withdrawal before Bush did! *rimshot*

Scene: Mark DeRosa's brain. The year is 2005.
Part of Mark DeRosa's brain: Come on, another position change? One day it's second base, the next day right field, now it's third? Why, I oughta go into Buck's office and throw his talking fish on the floor!
Other part of Mark DeRosa's brain: Hold on, other part of the brain. We're making $500,000 this year. Last year we made $725,000. All for playing a damn kids' game. This is, as they say in Brainland, a no-"us"-er. We're not going to complain.
Part of Mark DeRosa's brain: You're right, dude. Let's go back to looking at this crazy porn Teixeira gave us!

Maybe if the Democratic Convention hadn't played him up as a war hero, this wouldn't have happened. Ok, that's a pipe dream I know, but if it's fair to go after Bush's time in the National Guard(which I think it is,)
