    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.

    But yeah, I think its a combination of cultural shift and seniors not wanting their ox to be gored.

    Now I have to repeat myself.

    It is becaue I love human behavior. What people don't say often says a lot more about them than what they do say. And the fact is, there is something that neither you nor Rev will say. You won't say why the tea party is commposed mostly of white people. Instead of saying why, you choose to argue that it is irrelevant or you get incredibly defensive and argue that anyone who would even mention race is a racist or hypocrite. That says an awful lot about you even though you aren't even aware that you are communicating. It says that it bothers you and you would rather avoid it entirely than think about it.

    Because your question is irrelevant. Why are you asking if YOU AGREE that it doesn't matter? Why ask questions that are irrelevant?

    Why not simply answer the question? If it is as irrelevant as you suggest then it should be no bother to answer it. Why all the theatrics and histrionics?

    uhm she did answer you, in post 347 no one has any argument suggesting the tea party is made up mostly of white folk.


    the point is irrellevant.

    I asked, and I repeat, "why is the tea party composed mostly of white people?"

    That is the question that you and mellie refuse to answer.
