Well, from listening to Republicans across the country, I see that they've ret-conned a new reason we went to war!
As you know, we went to war with Iraq to
find active WMD programs
defeat an ally of al Qaeda
, I mean,
bring peace and prosperity to the Iraqis
, uh, oh, yes! reduce violence, at least in Baghdad, and allow the Iraqi government to make progress towards creating a unified Iraq! Anyway, due to our troops and their leaders, including the brilliant and courageous John McCain and George Bush
, we've achieved victory!
It must be great to be a high ranking Republican! You get all the great victories and effusive praise given to a toddler, while still being old enough to drink (and, alas, hold elective office).
