Sunday Roundup

They say March comes in like a lion, out like a lamb. Tell that to the folks inside the Green Zone who were advised this week to "remain under hard cover at all times" and ordered to wear helmets and body armor anytime they step outside. I wonder if it was these embattled Green Zoners that John McCain had in mind when he said: "We're succeeding. I don't care what anybody says." March Madness was in full effect at Team Clinton as well, with Hillary surrogates opening fire on Bill Richardson (James Carville compared him to Judas) and Nobel Peace Prize winner David Trimble (Jamie Rubin called him a sexist "crankpot" for questioning Hillary's role in the Irish peace process). Meanwhile, Democrats desperate to end a protracted, nominee-wounding battle began a 24/7 stakeout on Paul Begala's butt.
