QUESTION FOR HARRY REID: "As the situation on the ground in Iraq continues to brighten, and a light begins to appear at the end of the war tunnel, is it the brightest thing in the world to starve the military at this juncture?" If, as seems likely, Iraq succeeds, Republicans will be able to say it was in spite of the Democrats' efforts. If, as remains possible, it fails, Republicans will be able to say it was because of the Democrats' efforts.
UPDATE: A clueless lefty reader emails to complain, so let me be clear: I don't think this is a good thing. I think it's a bad thing. I just think it's evidence of Reid's ineptitude, which passeth my understanding.
