Polls: In Battlelground States, Majorities Favor Keeping Troops in Iraq Until Situation is "Stable"

The coming Mother of All Flip-Flops from The Chosen One?

And on a related noted: Liberal bloggers have spent many months castigating William Kristol and other pro-war commentators for failing to confess their errors; many have called (explicitly) for their ban from public commentary, given the premise they were so badly wrong, have not accounted for their errors, and therefore ought not be allowed to pollute the national town hall with their lies and stupidities.

What a difference a surge makes! Here's Ezra Klein, explaining why, actually, he wasn't wrong at all about the surge:

the argument over the surge was never an argument positing that more troops couldn't lead to less violence.

Of course not, darling.

Ha, ha. That is rich. Rich, velvety, and creamy, with just a hint of -- is that? -- essence of cashew? Put some dark chocolate around that sweet confection and sell the recipe to M&M Mars. You'll make millions, Ezra.

So, for Klein, Yglesias, Greenwald, etc., admitting error is for the little people.

(Though how they manage to rate themselves as anything more than little escapes me.)

Thanks to CJ again.
