Richard Bennett, on the increasingly ho-hum "Mossback Culture" blog, points to a post on "Protein Wisdom," (here).
Richard notes the selective quoting there and says, "Lefty blogs have a particularly illuminating take."
As a centrist-to left of center blog, I might as well chime in here:
When George W. Bush has to resort to quoting some more probably made up stuff (see here and here; I hadn't realized that its provenance depended on the guy who allegedly helped out the death squads in Central America, Negroponte), you know the stock excuses for Iraq's invasion are getting shop-worn.
Yglesias and Marshall said their pieces on the Iraq vote.
Some more lefty blogs covered it as can be seen here.
MHO: This won't stop the violence of course; especially since democracy is the last thing the neocons want in the middle east. The article in the NYT today hints at increased escalation and duration.
And, as Atrios notes, some Democrats are being silly:
I guess I'm not sure what this means - Biden's offering up the "if it becomes a total clusterfuck we get the hell out" strategy?
I think that's the Repub strategy, too.
