With Rice on the Side

Condoleeza is on her way, but not without the Left embarrassing themselves. The New York Times has an article today quoting the ever amusing Ted Kennedy.
However, Mr. Kennedy went on, Ms. Rice must share the blame for an Iraq adventure that has been "a catastrophic failure, a continuing quagmire." Worse, the war was undertaken on false premises, he asserted, as time and again, Ms. Rice misled lawmakers and the American people about whether Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction.
"Catastrophic failure?" I beg to differ. Isn't there rumor that elections are going to occur shortly in Iraq? A taste of democracy has been introduced, and the people report that they like it. Hm. Funny, but I could have sworn that was success - I think our Founding Fathers would have thought that was pretty damn good. And no one was misled - we believed that Saddam had WMDs. It turned out he did not - so what? No one was lied to - it was a reasonable belief based on the evidence, and we were wrong. That was not the only reason we went into Iraq. He was also in voilation of UN agreements. He was a threat to our safety and was in cahoots with terrorists. It is not as though we unseated a generous, lovable leader that treated his people with dignity and respect. He was a despot, and Iraq is doing much better without him. Ah, silly Ted Kennedy. I find it amusing that the man who got away with murder has the nerve to accuse anyone else of "misleading."
