Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one.

Public opinion

I'd love it if just one Democrat got on the TEE-VEE and declared in one of those split-screen debates that the other dude was an extremist for wanting to continue military engagement in Iraq. There is only one takeaway from this latest CBS poll. That the mainstream position is to bring the troops home immediately. This has actually been the case for a while now, but at this point you'd have to be seriously dense not to notice. The CW that only the Dirty F-ing Hippies, to use Atrios' phraseology, support immediate withdrawal from Iraq needs to be clubbed like a baby seal.

This blog is based on a true story.
