As predicted the Right is starting to look for the scapegoat for the loss in Iraq. Kevin Drum writes about Instapundit blaming the media. (Instapundit is the top-traffic right-wing blog, but does not allow readers to post comments.) The comments to kevin’s post are what is interesting:
But damn it, if the chickenhawks had just gone and fought…we’d have won easily, right?..
So..we never had enough troops..chickenhawks did not support the war with enlistment..draw your conclusions..
I don’t know why anyone would have a quibble with this particular bit of instapunditry. If Karl Rove has anything to do with it, a lot of people undoubtedly will blame the media.
It’s not like Bush is going to stand up and accept responsibility for his own actions.
