Too Clever by Half

A recent comment thread at MattY's blog found itself largely in agreement- we didn't invade Iraq for the oil. Each commenter in turn elucidated the fine points to prove that one must master many details and be very clever to reach the ineluctible conclusion- nobody knows why we went to Iraq.

Bullshit. The average American knows why we went to Iraq- for the oil. We're fighting for our "way of life" and that doesn't mean voting, which barely half of us do, it means driving, which almost all of us depend on to maintain our economy and ourselves within it.

This is why people despise 'liberals', who argue with themselves and lose those arguments. Liberals, lose the attitude and stop losing those arguments. It's better to be wrong once in a while than it is never to be right.
