Thank you GOP Batwings!
Essentially what this means is that Webb received even more media buzz thanks to his clueless opponent, Sen. George "Macaca" Allen; for as any fair-minded person knows, Allen claims that fiction mirrors reality is beyond the pale of common logic and decency.
GOP talking points notwithstanding, the most damning message from Webb's radio address is being reported across the land.
Bush-Allen "incompetence" has "undercut the fight against terrorism" and any military options the U.S. might have had against Korea and Iran. If voters want change, they need to throw the Republican bums out.
Voters get it; and no amount of spinning and dissembling by Allen and his minions are going to trump the war. October has been one of the deadliest months since Bush decided to invade Iraq. This election is about accountability for the folks who screwed everything up.
The only remedy to a series of Iraq policy failures by President Bush is a Democratic takeover of Congress in the Nov. 7 election, Virginia Senate candidate Jim Webb said Saturday.
"A Democratic Congress will demand from day one that the president find a real way forward in Iraq. We'll work with the administration and other Republicans to develop a concrete plan, but none of us are ready to settle for empty rhetoric, or the same old unacceptable results," Webb said.
