Self-Reflection

So Peter Beinart –Iraqi War Supportin’, opponent scoldin’, Bush enablin’, Peter Beinart joins the merry band of sociopaths and die-hards at Fred Hiatt’s House of Punditry and opines on what Obama must do:

So what’s Obama to do? He has to convince voters that his original antiwar stance still matters, that it’s the key to understanding what makes him and Clinton different now. That’s why Obama keeps trying to connect Clinton’s Iraq vote to her recent vote designating Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist group, suggesting that once again she is giving Bush the green light to launch a war. Unfortunately for him, history doesn’t generally repeat. The Iran resolution was rewritten to avoid any suggestion of military force precisely because Senate Democrats don’t want to make the same mistake twice. In a sense, Obama should be flattered. On foreign policy, Clinton is not the same person she was five years ago. Much of what she says about the Middle East these days represents a tacit acknowledgment that she was wrong and he was right. Unfortunately, in our amnesiac country, you don’t get elected president by saying, “I told you so.”

Of course you don’t, it doesn’t even keep Peter Beinart from getting paid to write editorials.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
