Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi writes:
Quietly, while Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have been inspiring Democrats everywhere with their rolling bitchfest, congressional superduo Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have completed one of the most awesome political collapses since Neville Chamberlain. [Nicely done Bush=Hitler Godwin’s Law violation–Ed] At long last, the Democratic leaders of Congress have publicly surrendered on the Iraq War, just one year after being swept into power with a firm mandate to end it.
Not surprisingly, given that it’s Rolling Stone, that’s a fundamental misreading of the results of the November 2006 midterms.
(And apropos of nothing, Douglas Kern used the phrase “Chickendoves” three years ago over at Tech Central Station.)
