Let's keep it real here, America lost the war in Iraq.
And it's not because the troops failed, but because the "leaders" who planned the war thought we were so popular that Iraqis would be lining up to buy "Girls Gone Wild" DVDs as soon as Saddam was on the run.
Since we are now building a wall in the middle of the country to stop them from murdering each other, it's safe to say that things didn't quite turn out that way.
But no one wants to hear that, so when Harry Reid, the U.S. Senate Majority Leader, told Bush to his face the war was lost, the Republicans dug out the old talking point of "not supporting the troops."
Here's what he really said,
- "I believe myself that the secretary of state, secretary of defense and -- you have to make your own decisions as to what the president knows -- [know] this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday,"
How does that hurt the troops?
The troops didn't even know who Donald Rumsfeld was after he got fired. Do they give a shit what Harry Reid thinks?
Even after Vietnam, America still doesn't like the idea that some wars cannot be won.
Ego is a motherfucking bitch and the truth is toxic.
Harry Reid, for spitting that truth from the White House roof, is the Snitch of the Week.
I will be following up Cam'ron's ignorant ass appearance on 60 Minutes later this week. Good looking to everyone who e-mailed me about that.
