How stupid do they think we are?

Well, apparently, that's not even the question. Josh Marshall reminds us of what should be obvious about Shrub's and Big Dick's hysterically hypocritical shouts that "Democrat critics are traitors to the troops for rewriting history":

Virtually all of the arguments the White House is now advancing are transparently ridiculous on their face to anyone who has closely followed this evolving debate over the last three years.

But that doesn't matter. The White House doesn't need to win any debates. What they need is for their core supporters to have something to say. Anything. And to be able to say it loudly. The one thing that would be fatal for the White House from its defenders would be silence.

But that would be too much to hope for.

Another thing too much to hope for would be 1LT George "Big Hat, No Cattle" Bush, TxANG (AWOL), not strutting around in a military jacket in front of big flags and pieces of military hardware like carriers or jets at the pop of a flashbulb....
