While giving one of his standard “we’re winning in Iraq…I don’t care what you say” speeches today, Senator McCain was interrupted by MSNBC with some breaking news of violence from that country. Turns out Muqtada al-Sadr, whose cease-fire agreement was a major component to the declining violence, has decided he doesn’t want to play nice anymore, with forces loyal to him clashing with Iraqi forces in Southern Iraq, leading to at least 50 deaths and 120 wounded.
I knew this would happen. The Republican party needs to go the way of the Whigs. They can't govern. They can't fight wars. They can't do anything, anymore. It's just become the party of White-Man Welfare for the Power-Mad.
