I haven't been blogging about politics because I haven't seen the point. But what does it say about our media that they're reacting to the proposed sending of more troops to Iraq as anything other than an insane idea? According to the latest polls I've seen, more people believe in a flat Earth than believe it's a good idea to send more troops to Iraq, and yet the TV pundits scratch their chins and say, "Hey, it might work!"

Oh, and it bears repeating that "Send more troops" is not a plan. It's might be an important step in support of a plan, but it's not, in and of itself, a plan. A plan has a clearly stated goal and metrics so you can know whether or not you're achieving that goal.
