WE can't win in Iraq: Howard Dean said so guess it must be true.
Doc Dean, famed for his deadly surgery on the Democratic Party, has been hiding his true light under a camouflage-painted bushel. He's a military genius. Who knew?
Forget that Dean never bothered to serve in uniform (too important). Ignore his lack of experience in Iraq or the Muslim world (too busy). Don't chide him for his ignorance of military history (too boring). And let's give him a pass for providing the perfect intro to terror-chieftain Ayman al-Zawahiri's frantic insistence that America can't win.
Just accept that Howard Dean, from his battle-hardened position atop the Democrats' Central Committee sorry, I meant "National Committee" knows more than our troops, their commanders or the millions of Iraqis anxious to go to the polls on Dec. 15.
Evidence doesn't matter anymore. Emotion and ambition rule. Dean cast the secret astrological charts and found Aquarius rising. If we just abandon the Iraqi people to terror, peace will reign in the heavens and on earth.
Well, Merry Christmas and happy holidays to our troops who are risking their lives for what Dr. Dean assures us is a lost and worthless cause.
How have we come to this state? Every American is entitled to his or her opinion, but when the prognosticator occupies a public position or commands a high place in our media, some measures of knowledge and competence should apply.
Consider this: Not one of us would consider looking over a neurosurgeon's shoulder and directing an operation. Yet a colonel in our military has more years of formal education and far more varied hands-on experience than any surgeon. Nonetheless, every political hustler and rambling pundit is now a military expert.
Military operations are the most complex...

Just keep at it Deany-boy. If you need a bigger shovel, let me know -- I will GLADLY pay for it.
Yes .... aren't we lucky to have so many military experts posing as political hacks. I especially like the 'redeployment' strategy. Isn't that a lot like the general who, when finding himself facing probable victory, bravely shouts ... "OK, men .... advance to the rear."
Excellent, except for this howler: "Sen. Clinton, too, has tacked to a sensible course on Iraq if for pragmatic reasons."
Please. About all Hillary has said is, "Bush is doing everything wrong, but if I were in charge I would do everything right."
Sure, very helpful. Very thoughtful. It drives me nuts when conservatives feel they have to throw liberals a bone to seem reasonable.
Don't throw them a bone unless it is deserved. It doesn't make you look balanced and objective, it just makes you look weak and stupid.
"Here at home we've reached a sorry pass when the Chairman of the DNC and the Dems' House leader team up with terrorists to lobby for an American surrender."
Well said. I think even the stupidest of the dems (and by that I mean Barbara Boxer) will eventually realize Howlin'Howie is a disaster and he'll get dumped. Too bad. He was a lot of fun.
Ralph Peters has COWARD Dean's number!
Surely you can't be serious. How could you overlook the brain trust twins of Patty Murray and Mary Landrieu?
Does the M. D. after his name stand for Mad Dog?
You're right; I was hasty. I also forgot our two other brain trust twins right here in CA: Maxine Waters and Barbara Lee. The field of "stupidest dem" is HUGE (or do I mean HUGH?)!!
Probably just as confusing as Father's Day in the 'hood.
But it's still pathetic and sad how low the Democrats have gone.
That idiot politicians can pull defeat from the jaws of victory faster than anything else.
That our brave soldiers can win every battle and lose the war because politicians in Washington think they know better than commanders in the field.
I think those people that say we couldn't win a war against China are right. We could NEVER win that war with the millstone that is the anti-American left dragging us down to defeat.
For that matter, we could never have won the first two World Wars with todays Demwits whining and crying and nay-saying like they do.
I'll see your Patty and Mary and raise you a Sheila Jackson Lee.
I'll trump that with a Cynthia McKinney and a Jim McDermott.

Pomeroy to Howard Dean: Shut up
MARY CLARE JALONICK
WASHINGTON - North Dakota Rep. Earl Pomeroy is accusing Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean of overstepping his bounds, saying the former presidential candidate should not give up on the war in Iraq.
On Monday, Dean likened the war in Iraq to Vietnam and said, "The idea that the United States is going to win the war in Iraq is just plain wrong."
"My words to Howard Dean are simple - shut up," Pomeroy told WDAY Radio in North Dakota on Thursday.
Pomeroy later told The Associated Press that he is tired "of the overblown rhetoric on both sides."
"We have young men and women with their lives on the line," he added. "The debate has fallen far short of what they deserve."
Pomeroy said Dean wasn't representing Democrats like him when he discussed the war.
"He is not hired to make major policy announcements on behalf of all the Democrats," Pomeroy said. "As our party chairman I believe he needs to focus on the nuts and bolts of winning elections."
