Hillary Just May Actually Be a Hawk

It’s always amusing to hear true-blue Democrats explain how their leaders don’t really mean what they say and do.

Oh, don’t you know that Charlie Rangel really isn’t for conscription – he’s just pulling a fast one on the Republicans. Don’t you know anything about how the game is played?!

Aw, c’mon, Democrats don’t really believe in the War on Drugs – they just repeat the slogans and increase the funding because they can’t repeal it anyway. Be practical!

Sure, they vote for every war that comes down the pike and do nothing to stop them once underway, but they’re really doves at heart. That’s just politics!

I’d rather argue with a kid about the Tooth Fairy than try to convince these people of their error – it feels almost as mean-spirited – but I’ll link to this anyway.
