The Foxhole of Denial

Remember Lieberman's December 2003 comment about Howard Dean living in a "spider-hole of denial" if he believed America was not safer thanks to the Iraq war?

Sen. Feingold seems to have finally articulated the proper rejoinder:

"We must get out of our political foxholes and be willing to clearly and specifically point out what a strategic error the Iraq invasion has been," Feingold, D-Wis., told a National Press Club audience.

He said some Democrats in Congress gave in to "intimidation" by the Bush administration when they voted to authorize the war in 2002, and warned: "If we do not show both a practical and emotional readiness to lead in the fight against terrorism, we will lose in '06 and we will lose in '08, just like we did in '02 and '04."

There's no hope for Joe on this. Some of his best friends are neo-cons, after all. But the more he is isolated within his own party and within his own caucus, the better for our party and our nation.
