Allahpundit, while discussing this week’s knife fight in an alleyway among the caucus, caustically comments:
Maybe each side’s ideological principles are basically only as sturdy as the support they get from charismatic leaders at the top. Ask an anti-war Obama voter about that, if you can still find one.
…Ouch. I keep forgetting just how comprehensively the antiwar movement lost the argument. They lost so badly, in fact, that it’s hard to remember there was ever a point where there was a faint possibility that they could win.
