  •  You and Dick Cheney (3+ / 0-)

    I was struck by a quick clip of Cheney I saw recently, tho I can't tell you when that clip dates to.  Anyway, pressed on the war disaster, Cheney quoted McCain (something to the effect, 'as Sen McCain said, we're not losing the war...')

    Just as has been pointed out from the start, McCain made the deal with the devil, to trade his public and abject support for the war, in exchange for the Rove machine at his back in '08.

    And there was Cheney: using the McCain brand to sell the war.  This product, endorsed by Saint Maverick McCain.  And now, Brand McCain dutifully leads the charge for The New Way Forward Surge.

    Oh, it's McCain's War now.  McCain's Surge.  Brand McCain (Soul McCain), purchased for 30 silver Ranger shekels.
