Clyburn's Hopes

Don Surber:

Democratic House Whip James Clyburn of South Carolina has to be so disappointed. After all, he told the Washington Post last month that good reports in Iraq would be "a real big problem for us" Democrats...

Good news for Iraq = bad news — "a real big problem for us" — for Democrats.

What sort of idiots put themselves in such a fundamentally flawed position?

Oh yea, Democrats.

But let's look at Clyburn's statement another way; that is: bad news in Iraq would be good news for Democrats. And what would comprise bad news? More American dead and wounded as well as additional Iraqi civilian fatalities.

Thus, if Clyburn is to be believed, Democrats are hoping and praying for more American dead and wounded. That's quite a platform for what is reputed to be a mainstream political party.
