Smilin' Norm Coleman: A Full Review of Iraq

Posted by: Hammer / 8:06 AM

Eric Black provides a very thorough review of Smilin' Norm's position(s) on Iraq, and concluded with notes from an in interview with the Empty Suit himself. I feel like I've learned something, but I'm not sure what.

Well, there's Coleman's not really having a plan-ism:

Based largely on this skepticism about the Maliki government’s commitment to the direction Washington advocates, Coleman opposes putting 17,000 additional U.S. troops into harm’s way in Baghdad. Instead, he advocates laying out benchmarks for the Maliki government to achieve, giving them six months to do so, and to reassess at that point the best strategy for advancing U.S. interests.

This is the No Child Left Behind approach to Iraq. When in doubt, give 'em a hard test! If they fail it, uh, give 'em another hard test!

And, of course, when in doubt, assert that up is down, down is up, and shows of proof don't matter:

When I pressed [Coleman] on the point that claims about pre-war connections between Saddam and Al Qaida have been proven false, he said that “there’s something there” but that Saddam was a terrorist and a supporter of terrorism.

I know it's been proven that little green aliens are NOT controlling Smilin' Norm with a high-end universal remote (sadly, no Mute button), but I still say "there's something there".
