The Big Lobotmyski

Today Andrea "Stoneface" Mitchell concluded that, when it comes to favoring a pardon for Scooter, 18% equals a majority.

Lest you think that kind of denial of reality is a skill reserved for the elites, there's this from the Times:

Republicans See Divided Party and Trouble in ’08

Even as Republican voters continued to support President Bush and the war in Iraq, including the recent increase in the number of American troops deployed there, they said a candidate who backed Mr. Bush’s war policies would be at a decided disadvantage in 2008. And they suggested that they were open to supporting a candidate who broke with the president on a crucial aspect of his Iraq strategy.

Asked what was more important to them in a nominee, a commitment to stay in Iraq until the United States succeeds or flexibility about when to withdraw, 58 percent of self-identified Republican primary voters said flexibility versus 39 percent who said a commitment to stay. The three leading Republican candidates are strong supporters of the war and the increase in American troops there.

Got that? A majority of Republicans simultaneously acknowledges the reality that we are going to have to admit failure in Iraq AND steadfastly supports Bush's utter rejection of that same reality.

I guess I am going to have to stop dismissing the possibility that the far right will support an adulterous once-liberal presidential candidate like (take your pick).

The only credibility Andrea Mitchell ever had was given to her by her marriage to Alan Greenspan. Now that he's retired, she's lost it. Kind of like Hillary Clinton!
