Mission Accomplished --- Hilary said So...
In a cynical and transparent move intended to "re-invent" herself in the eyes of the American public, the Hildebeast made an announcement the other day, contradicting two years of democratic (small 'd' intentional) party rhetoric and intimating that, as far as SHE is concerned, the Insurgency in Iraq is losing steam.

A far cry from John F-ing Kerry's assertion that Iraq was "teetering on the brink of civil war", a talking point that has been made by everyone from Charley Rangel to Nancy Pelosi to Al Gore to Howard Dean. Now, all of a sudden, a successful election in Iraq is a good thing, despite the numbers of U.S. troops in place, despite the fact that every democrat of note was dead-set against the invasion (unless voying for it before you voted against it was considered good politics at the time).

With a wave of her gnarled, palsied claw, Hilary has given the whole operation in Iraq a clean bill (no pun intended) of health and praises the Americans that made it possible, without even obliquely mentioning the president, and declares all to be just fucking peachy. Within minutes, democrats all over the country emerged from their spider holes to parrot the new party line, knowing that most Americans have attention spans too short to remember what they had said yesterday. Or what they had been saying for three years, for that matter.

The new and improved democratic party was on offer with that speech made in Iraq the other day. All the signs were there. Hilary trotting around with John McCain, suddenly concerned for ther Iraqi people and praising the U.S. Military. Other indications of the general gearing up for 2008: defending the status quo on Social Security, caving in on the new laws restricting trial attorneys, bathing.

Stay tuned, it's going to get a whole lot more like Bizzaro world around here...
