I’m reading the comment section at Reason Magazine and as per usual losing in Iraq is at the top of their agenda. They have much good to say about the Democrats who want to end the Iraq War with an American defeat.
So I’m proposing a new motto to replace “Politics ends at the water’s edge.” I like:
Stupidity Begins At The Water’s Edge
Not even the Libertarian’s Saint Jefferson (he was actually a Democrat – see Jefferson Jackson Day Dinners done annually by the Democrats) was that lame (see pirates, Barbary). Did you know the war on the Barbary pirates was not declared? All Jefferson got from Congress was the authorization to build some ships and an AUMF which reads like the AUMF against Iraq almost word for word. Plus the war went on for over a decade and extended into Madison’s term.
