John McCain, in the midst of his latest blunder about what’s going on in Iraq, engages in a bit of Straight-Talk-speak-with-forked-tongue:
We’re paying a huge penalty for a failed strategy I voted hard against and I believe the strategy can and will succeed.
OK. I give up. When did John McCain “vote hard” against the Bush strategy in Iraq? Was it before, or after, he supported Bush on Iraq more than anyone else?
No one has supported President Bush on Iraq more than I have.
And when is McCain’s inability to grasp the current situation in our #1 foreign policy hotspot going to get as much press attention as Hillary Clinton’s hyperactive imagination about events a decade old?
