Smart people, really dumb remarks

There's a couple of really irritating columns out there today. Here's a real gem from Joe Klein at Time magazine.
But embracing defeat is a risky political strategy, especially for a party not known for its warrior ethic. In fact, the responsible path is the Democrats' only politically plausible choice: they will have to give yet another new Iraqi government one last shot to succeed. This time, U.S. military sources say, the measure of success is simple: Operation Forward Together, the massive joint military effort launched last week to finally try to secure Baghdad, has to work. If Baghdad isn't stabilized, the war is lost.
Now I would say something about that but Heretik has already dispatched the ertswhile "crack" reporter, or would that be reporter on crack, quite nicely.

Meanwhile John Fund at the WSJ had this to say, among other drivel.
If President Bush has staked the future of his administration on the outcome in Iraq, Democrats appear to have placed their political bets on the war continuing to go badly. Given the death of Zarqawi, the formation of a unity government in Baghdad, and possible developments in the search for WMD material, that is starting to look like a risky wager.

Right. Things are just going great. Zarqawi's death put the insurgents in disarray for a whole week. That new joint security operation is got started with a bang. Only 27 dead in a wave of bombings with scores wounded and two of our soldiers kidnapped. The AQ claims they have them. Hard to fight that kind of success story.

And of course it's not the American taxpayer being bled dry for this folly. Those Iraqi oil revenues are paying for it aren't they, just as the administration promised. Why they're dumping all that black oil directly on the ground instead of sending it to a refinery because they got so much of it.

Gaaah. The only thing more irritating than these two, is that the idiots running the Democratic Party are going to believe them.

Justin raimondo had a column a while ago about John Fund that was hilarious and sad. it centered around some fiasco where Fund was campaigning for some office he wasn't actually running for or something. I think Fund wrote Limbaughs books for him as well.

Maybe I misnamed the post. I should have called it dumb people, dumber remarks.
