It's like when Palin announced Bristol's pregnancy and said she'd marry the father... that wouldn't have worked out. Jamie Lynn Spears and her boyfriend weren't doing so great the last time I heard about that...

- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

Could you repost that list of conservative words Newt suggested all Republicans should use again? I want to know if "secular" was among the list.
