Don't Think of an Elephant

Discussions with several friends and colleagues has me wondering if the sputtering of John McCain, John McHugh, and their merry band of neoconservatives is just another game to them. When have neocons ever been known for honesty or having the best interests of the country at heart?
They come out and say how much they support President Obama's plan for Afghanistan and Pakistan, but worry that other people might charge him with "incrementalism" or not supporting the troops by instantly approving every request for more troops from the commanders.
Watch for neocons to use this tactic by mentioning incrementalism as often as possible on the talk shows this weekend and in upcoming op-eds.

  1. When you're trying to drive the political conversation especially as a talking head on TV the easiest thing in the world is to repeat an unsubstantiated rumor and attribute it to "some people." Some people say it's a stupid way to debate real ideas in politics.
