    Nobody 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.

    I foolishly expected this to be about Gingrich. There's no need to look for new stuff, just riffing through his back catalogue should be sufficient.

    This is total BS, that is not true at all. Some may be, most are not. That's coming from a non religious fellow.

    So it DOES matter who is connected to Fallwell but it doesn't matter who Obama is connected to? You contradicted yourself in such a small sentence. Your abject hyper-partisanship is showing along with your "less than stellar" education.

    No i didn't. I said it doesn't matter who is connect to falwell, wright or anyone else for that matter because they are all loons. I was asking him if he agreed with my assertion about him. Looks like you need some reading comprehension lessons.

    You stated Falwell was a racist and seem to care about racist pastors yet when Obama's pastor is called out, you state it doesn't matter... Dont see how that's contradictory?

    No, I was merely pointing out that "all pastors are racist" is a patently idiotic statement.

    You still aren't getting it. I said that they are were racist and i dont care if any candidate is associated with him. John mccain was endorsed by hagee who made some questionable antisemtic comments but i don't think we should make a big deal about it mccains connection to him. It doesn't matter what pastor anyone is connected to. They are all the same. That's the whole point i was trying to make.
