Republican victories as far as the eye can see

We've turned the corner in Iraq.

We've turned the corner on the homefront, as well.

Just this morning I heard George Will express an interesting idea on the Laura Ingraham Show. He posits that Iraq may well become an asset, politically, for the Republican Party. It's not difficult to follow and it goes like this; The Democrats are riding nearly all of their chips on Iraq 's becoming a failure. (Indeed, they think it has been a failure since shortly after they voted for its funding in Congress.) They are broadcasting a message that looks very much like an advocacy of defeat at any price in Iraq.
But what if Iraq becomes (as I believe it is becoming) the stellar success story of the century?

A black hole that the Democrats will find even light itself will be impossible to escape from.

Now we have Howard Dean insisting that the US Won't Win in Iraq.

"I've seen this before in my life. This is the same situation we had in Vietnam. Everybody then kept saying, 'just another year, just stay the course, we'll have a victory.' Well, we didn't have a victory, and this policy cost the lives of an additional 25,000 troops because we were too stubborn to recognize what was happening."

He attempts to cover the footprints of his cut and run proposal;
He said the Democrat proposal is not a 'withdrawal,' but rather a 'strategic redeployment' of U.S. forces.

It's really astounding, but the Democrats are, as Will observes, exhibiting insanity. A good definition
of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. (A quick Google of some key words in that postulate brought me to a source that traces its origin to American Statesman, Benjamin Franklin).
Now we have the Democrats positioning themselves, says Will, to run on the George McGovern platform.

Will is not chalking rocket science on his blackboard. I think every pro-war advocate hoped that this war would be successful and bring coat tails. Is it possible that the negative din has been so protracted, so mounting, the Democrats began to believe their own "Quagmire" stories so fervently, they are hurling themselves off a cliff?

If that's so, then we may have Republican victories as far as the eye can see.
