Christopher Dickey: Murtha is Right
If C&L were here of course, he would put up the video of Murtha putting Nora O'Donnell in her place -- and it was quite beautiful, you can see it here. I'm not the hawk that Murtha is, but that is a discussion for another day. The fact is he is right and what is more, most all of us, right and left know it. Those who say otherwise are either still practicing the "Tinkerbell" policy of clapping louder; or more concerned about the Republican fortunes (the spectator sport nature of politics) than they are the "troops" they claim to love. If more the GOP came around to Chuck Hegel's thinking, not too far off from Murtha's, they could cut their losses and take their hit now and hope to recover some by 2006. Of course they won't. Bush's inability to ever admit, let alone contemplate, error is going to sink them all. Christoper Dickey knows it and details why Murtha is right, but Bush will never admit it, in Newsweek.
