Ol' Fred Smacks Down Sen. Reid

...and the nutroots.

How could anyone possibly believe, as Reid charges, that our commanding general in Iraq, David Petraeus, is out of touch with what's going on. Surely someone in Reid's position would know that Petraeus is briefed daily on all aspects of Iraq -- from civil to military. Surely he has to know that Petraeus is a true warrior scholar who literally wrote the Army's book on counterinsurgency warfare.

But Reid's comments are not meant for logical analysis. He proclaimed the war lost some time ago, and the surge as a failure even before the additional troops were on the ground. The problem is that every one of Reid's comments I've noted here has also been reported gleefully by Al Jazeera and other anti-American media. Whether he means to or not, hes encouraging our enemies to believe that they are winning the critical war of will.

Read the whole thing here.

Ol' Fred For President. Because white-flag waving, panty-wearing Quislings like Reid are just begging for a trip to the woodshed.

Thought it was worth mentioning that Fred! is now one point ahead of Giuliani according to Rasmussen. While it's obvious that polls this far out don't really mean a whole hell of a lot, it's interesting that the guy in first place right now is not even officially campaigning. More than anything what this data says is that very likely Thompson's late entry will not be a huge disadvantage.
