Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

In Case You Were Wondering

Iraq is about to erupt in civil war.

The Kurds are getting antsy, the Shiite factions are about to erupt into internecine fighting and the Sunni are pissed at everyone.

No doubt the GOP will blame Obama for leaving rather than blaming Bush for invading the damned country in the first place.

I don't think that line of attack is going to win much traction with voters who overwhelmingly disapprove of the war.  Won't stop them from making it.

They can't help themselves.
