What a maverick! Such straight talk!
Given that al-Qaeda wasn't even in Iraq before dubya's invasion, it's hard to see how al-Qaeda would have succeeded there if the war hadn't started.
So nearly 4,000 American troops and countless Iraqis dead, thousands more maimed, our economy faltering, our standing in the international community a shambles, an illegal war based on lies and deceptions - that's all good for John McCain.
But it is nice to see Senator McCain feeding his man-crush on dubya, though he's not getting too too close.
From the NYTimes:
Senator John McCain’s campaign advisers will ask the White House to deploy President Bush for major Republican fund-raising, but they do not want the president to appear too often at his side, top aides to Mr. McCain said Sunday.How's that for sending mixed signals??
