Unseemly pleasure...

Senator Edwards has apparently compared Iraq to the Bay of Pigs invasion. King of Fools has prepared a very nice chart, as a primer for the poor senator, who seems to have little grasp of history. Do take a look.

A few highlights:

Dictators overthrown: 0,1
Population Liberated: 0, 25,374,691
Population Still Oppressed: 11,308,764, 0
I've got bad news for the two senators. This isn't smart politics. Most Americans do not consider the War on Terror to be "Bush's War." We consider it our war. Every bit of it. Rubbing your hands together in unctuous delight when we "fail," (which in fact we haven't, it just looks that way in the NYT) is not going to win you votes. The flakizoids who want us to lose are already in your camp...
