Senators Reid & Kerry Seek "Last Man" Willing to Die for Their Mistake in Iraq

Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senator John Kerry agree that the war in Iraq should end immediately, or over three months, six months, a year, perhaps 18 months, depending on the politics of the moment, the latest poll, or the audience they address.

That gives rise to the need for them to ask for volunteers— since we no longer conscript via draft—for soldiers willing to be the last to die for the failure they are working to impose on America's effort in the Mideast.

Reid and Kerry are attempting to reprise Kerry's earlier political success, built on a question he asked the Senate 35 years ago.

"How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?"

The reality is that Reid, Kerry, General Pelosi and team are really wondering
"How do you ask a soldier to be the last man to die for your political advancement, without getting caught?"
The Democratic leadership has repeatedly been too busy to meet with General Petraeus, including during his current visit this week to brief political leaders on the situation on the ground.

Reid, Kerry and Pelosi simply no longer care.

At this point all that matters is that we lose fast enough to fulfill Senator Reid's expectation that the war will be good for his party, a chance to pick up seats in the next election. And if a few American soldiers have to die in the process, well politics is a rough business.

As for Senator Kerry? Well, this time it's not his medals he and his friends are tossing over the fence.

It's his country.

UPDATE: Rush Limbaugh joins The Canticle in calling for craven Harry Reid to step down.
