Amazing, isn't it? After so many years when everything in Iraq was on the news every night, and that whole Freedom Fries mindset was on display, and if you questioned W, you were the next best thing to a traitor… it just sort of faded away.
Now Iraq is falling apart after the trillions we spent there and all the lives lost or ruined for "Freedom". Charles P. Pierce has a quick run down. It's worth reading between gloating sessions over Cantor's downfall. Because the GOP is already moving on, and this will be perfect for their need to change the focus on them to something else.
And it's already starting. Look for it to become the new mega-scandal narrative, how Obama and the Democrats lost Iraq and the Middle East. You know, in hindsight it kind of looks like letting W and company walk away from the mess they made with no accountability just might have been a mistake.
Meanwhile, the next time your tea bagger uncle, cousin, or neighbor starts to throw Iraq in your face, look 'em right in the eye and ask when they're taking their guns and going over there to do something about it. 'Cause I've got family members in the military now, one whose been there for several tours already, and damned if I want to see either of them fed into the meat grinder so the Republicans can boast about how much bigger their dicks are.
