I think I just invented a new word.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
- 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.
Appears you can't back that up.
That's ok though; you see, I know that Palin ****ed up and that severly limits your options. You could a) make up some bull**** to cover for her; b) admit she ****ed up; c) refuse to acknowledge her gaffe; or d) pretend like I don't understand what she said and that what she said was correct.
Seems you're going with (c).
But that's ok. Sane folks know that Paul Revere did not ride to warn the British as she idiotically claimed.
