Never is a long time

Speaking in Denver yesterday, and after being interrupted repeatedly by Iraq war protesters, John McCain declared that he would "never surrender in Iraq."

Sounds like a hundred year war to me.

But considering, as Attaturk at Firedoglake does, that McCain has a record of being very wrong on Iraq, he ought to be encouraged to run on the war issue. I think the American public would be interested in hearing just how wrong he's been.

Still, it's hard to imagine that there is a roomful of people anywhere in America who would cheer McCain's bellicose boastings. But yesterday in Denver there was.
