it would be a waste of breath trying to get Sen. Obama to acknowledge the existence of countless soldiers and their families who reject his patronizing, infantilizing, and insulting view of all American troops as dupes/victims who have squandered their lives.
Fast forward to February 28th, and Sen. McCain announces his candidacy for president on Letterman, saying Americans "are very frustrated, and they have every right to be. We've wasted a lot of our most precious treasure, which is American lives, over there."
What does Michelle say?
The right-wing machine? Veritable crickets.
Where's our apology?
