Good old Drudge Report...

The DRUDGE REPORT has learned from a top GOP operative that the Republican National Committee will provide state parties with a web video prior to release tomorrow afternoon that shows a white flag waving over images of Democrat leaders making anti-war remarks. The ad is in response to the controversial comments Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean and 2004 Democratic Presidential nominee John Kerry made earlier in the week. A Democratic strategist who had the web ad described to her said, “This is way over the top but we have no one to blame but Dean, Kerry and others who continue to pander to the anti-war activists within our party.” The web video advances the Republican contention that the Democrats only have a “retreat and defeat” message on the war in Iraq. The video highlights the effect Democrats can have on the morale of U.S. soldiers. One Republican strategist familiar with the ad said, “The Democrats, especially Howard Dean have a way of trying to turn the tables and say ‘that’s not what I meant’ – its just those ‘evil Republicans’ This video will make them crazy – it reinforces what they really believe with what they actually said – and that is devastating for the Democratic Party.”

a) Like any Democratic strategist is going to say anything to Matt Drudge besides "Do you mind? I have real work to do."
b) How typical of the Republicans to try and spin troop withdrawal as weakness, even though many prominent Republicans are making noises about getting the hell out of Iraq.
c) I'm guessing Rep. Murtha knows a shitload more about the military and what their needs are than 99% of the Republican Party, so if he says American has to draw down, I'm more prepared to believe him than a stupid white flag ad.
d) Face it, jackoffs - you lost an unwinnable war. Cut your losses now instead of sacrificing more young Americans needlessly.
