Paul Bagala Makes Up For Past Sins

GOP on Iraq = More of the Same | TPMCafe:
The only place in the American government where there is an honest and spirited debate over Iraq is within the Democratic Party. Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer are not on the same page – and that’s a good thing. Hillary Clinton and John Kerry disagree. Hooray for that.

If anyone tells you the solution to Iraq is easy or obvious, they’re a liar or a fool (a false choice in the case of our president). So why not feature the debate? At least someone is debating what to do.

The fact is the American people want a new direction in Iraq, and the Democrats offer several. The Republicans, on the other hand, offer nothing more than a four-word strategy: more of the same.
I used to like Paul's commentaries on CNN, especially when he was sitting across from Tucker, but lately he's been a little too meek when he should be eye-spittin' and too flip when he ought to be deadly serious in my opinion. This entry redeems him somewhat for me. He can still write a damn good speech.
