"Poll: Bush support holds despite Iraq, 9/11 hearings," headlines a USA Today item. We are reminded of something Dick Cheney said way back when in response to a reporter's tendentious query. It was with these words that the future vice president won our heart for all time:
I disagree with the premise of your question.
In this case, we disagree with the premise of the headline. DESPITE Iraq and the 9/11 hearings? How about BECAUSE OF Iraq and the 9/11 hearings? A lot of us out here are inspired by GW's cojones in staying the course in Iraq, as we blogged yesterday, and as for the 9/11 hearings? The Bush bashers -- both on the commission and sitting on the other side of the table in the hearings -- have thoroughly discredited the entire process, to GW's advantage.
