Politics, pop culture, and self-deprecation

“The number of flipflops and missteps committed by the Bush administration in Iraq far exceeds anything John Kerry can be accused of. First we dissolved the Iraqi army, then we tried to reconstitute it. First we tried to eliminate the Baathists, then we turned to them for help. First we installed General Jay Garner to run the country, then we gave it to Paul Bremer and when the insurgency became intractable, we installed an Iraqi government. The man we chose was a protégé of the CIA with the reputation of a strong man – a far cry from democracy. First we attacked Falluja over the objections of the Marine commander on the ground, then pulled them out when the assault was half-way through, again over his objections. “Once you commit, you got to stay committed,” he said publicly. More recently, we started bombing Falluja again. ” – George Soros

(I think it’s freakin’ hilarious that Cheney inadvertently directed people to Soros’s website during the debate.)
