I just happened to flip on The McLaughlin Group (talk about everything that's wrong with political discourse on TV!) in time to hear Pat Buchanan adamantly state we're in jeopardy of losing both wars (Iraq and Afghanistan). Mr. McLaughlin himself then cuts off Buchanan (no one gets to finish a complete thought on the show) to blare that we're not in jeopardy of losing two wars, but three, reminding Buchanan you must include the war on terror as the third.

Geez, these nitwits on the right. Can't they even recite the GOP/GW/Rove talking points correctly! For how long has Bush been trying to convince the American public that the Iraq war is a central part of the war on terror, that the two are actually one? Bush (stupidly) admitted that the toughest job he has as president is linking the two (duh, it wouldn't be so tough to convince if it were true). Yet, McLaughlin and Buchanan talk in terms of two and three wars, not one. Idiots, all of them.
