Kerry mouthpiece Mike McCurry, who has very obviously taken to wearing some sort of eyeliner lately, was telling Paula Zahn on CNN last night that President Bush didn't have a plan to win the peace in Iraq because we went in with too few troops. Nothing unusual there; all the Kerrion ---and even a lot of people who are in support of the war--- say the same.
But my question is "Why?" Why do Kerry and his people say that we didn't send enough troops to Iraq? I thought the idea was that they didn't want any troops there. Are they really such adherents of the Powell Doctrine (i.e., if you go, go all out)? I doubt that. So how does Kerry get away with saying to a party that is overwhelmingly anti-war that we are not as completely committed to Iraq as we should have been from the start?
I don't know. They're all assholes to me. But I do know, as I have observed elsewhere, that there is no reason for Kerry not to make as many criticisms of the President as he can. He will not be held to account for them in any event, so why not at least try? He may come out ahead for the effort and almost certainly will not suffer for any of it, no matter how contradictory.
