“What’s most troubling about Senator Reid’s comments yesterday is his defeatism,” said Mr. Cheney. “And the timetable legislation that he is now pursuing would guarantee defeat. Maybe it is a political calculation.”
Huh. Is it my imagination, or did the Vice President just helpfully point out that the war is remarkably unpopular and that the American people want a timetable? If defeatism is the result of political calculation, then defeatism must be politically popular, right? Moreover, the Vice President seems to be asserting that the American people are wrong to want this, and that, by extension, they must suck. And democracy, too.
Am I missing something?
