And the Answer Is

The pundits were unanimous. Honesty about the real world was forthcoming. Mistakes were made, lessons learned. The loyal opposition loud and clear. The President canned the architect of the war plan. A panel was convened to consult on a plan of action to save face in defeat. A new path and chief at defense who would right the wrongs. The electorate spoke clearly. So what does Rove/Cheney/Bush answer with? Full speed ahead with war, no actually an increase in the size of the military so that the war can continue at an increased pace.

One has to admire the gumption with this crowd. Offense, offense, offend is certainly their motto. They see an issue is going against them and they tack in the opposite direction. They know this can polarize but they see it as bold and so do their minions. The last Democrat to have such skills was James Polk!

And take a look at the Democrats. Here are folks riding into office on a wave of popular revulsion at this President and his minions and what do they do? Before they even take office, they are giving him cover. We vote for an end to war and they start talking about a "surge" in troop strength. I swear, if I hear the word "surge" again, I'm going to puke. Do the major media have to parrot every stupid word these idiots come up with? You can't say "pull out" of Iraq -- you have to say redeploy the troops. You can't say escalate the war. It is a surge in troop strength. The framing of this issue has become one of management of the war. This is eerily familiar -- and disgusting. What was it someone said about farce? I find it hard to resist telling my Democratic friends that I told them so.

Is that a troop surge in your pants or are you just happy to see me?
