The Republican Party is light years from ever nominating a black person to be their presidental candidate. They are like the Mormon church of the 50's.
For all you liberals, when we do finally nominate a black man for President, we will be sure he is someone's "Uncle Tom".
Wouldn't want y'all to soil yourselves.
- 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.
Same difference...?...you tell me???
