Uncle Jimbo over at Blackfive found a really idiotic article at the Wisconsin State Journal by a guy named Bill Kaplan. (Dude – lose the beard.)

Here’s how it starts:

Last January, President Bush decided to escalate the Iraq War by sending more troops. Bush did this despite an electoral repudiation of the war, misgivings of the U.S. military ‘s Joint Chiefs of Staff and the advice of the bipartisan Iraq Study Group. Now the White House claims that the escalation is working and is a “return on success. ” But what are the facts?

Oh do tell….

It’s a darn good thing we didn’t have the same media in the Revolutionary war that we have now.
