What victory looks like

John McCain, who just yesterday won the Republican primary for Senate in Arizona, had this to say on Twitter a few days ago:

John McCain declares victory in Iraq on Twitter

I wonder if McCain will credit George W. Bush for the most recent signs of “victory.”

In one of the broadest assaults on Iraq’s security forces, insurgents unleashed a wave of roadside mines and a more than a dozen car bombs across Iraq on Wednesday, killing dozens, toppling a police station in the capital and sowing confusion among the soldiers and police who responded.

Keep this in mind when Senator McCain campaigns for a new “victory” over Iran.

    Its kind of weird to call it victory, when you can’t even define what victory is. I mean apparently victory is leaving? So yeah, I guess in order to have the troops leave, you have to put the troops there. Thanks for that, GWB.

    I think McCain’s definition of victory is anything less than nuclear holocaust.

  3. This is McCain’s swan song…he is done in Washington….his mopinions will be about as popular as a rattlesnake in heat.
