mccain-lieberman-wolf.jpg Bill Richardson calls out St. McCain for his Iraq war stance. Good for him. Hopefully more Democrats will do the same.

"The leading advocate for escalating the war is Senator John McCain. I have served with John in Congress and I respect him. But John McCain is wrong, dead wrong to think that we can solve Iraq's political crisis through military escalation.

This will only lead to more dead people I fear. Greg Sargent points out that McCain is flopping around between sentences.

“I take the position I’m taking with the full knowledge that only 15 to 18 percent of the American people agree with my position that we need more troops,” he said.

and then this:

“The American people are disappointed and frustrated with the Iraq war, but they want us to succeed if there is any way to do that,” Mr. McCain told a news conference. Unlike some American military commanders who have said any troop increase should be temporary, he said any increase should last “until we can get the situation under control, or until it becomes clear that we can’t.”

What the hell is he talking about? You know Bush is going to send in more troops---Lieberman and St. McCain get to wear their very own Neocon---Pukka necklaces. Jane says Jeffery Feldman calls him "Lord" McCain. I like St. McCain better.
