'Progressives are weak'

"The progressives are more afraid of the war in Iraq than a 19 year-old kid approached by an Army recruiter at the mall," writes Operation Truth founder Paul Rieckhoff. "So keep it up, progressives. Keep avoiding the war talk. McCain, Giuliani, and Hagel will be more than happy to talk about Iraq. They'll make you look soft on defense issues, slap you around in '06, and then kick your asses in another Presidential election in '08. And you'll be left with another few years of cozy conferences and navel-gazing, bitching about how you are misunderstood in the red states. It's the war, stupid." For more commentary on "the 'I' word" currently on hiatus from the Democrats' vocabulary, see David Corn, Arianna Huffington, or Dan Carol. (Huffington Post)
