Dem Debate: The Only Question That Matters

Whom to despise most? Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Edwards, Joe Biden, Chris Dodd, Bill Richardson, the talking heads, or the whimpering audience of welfare-warfare half-wits? My mind changes as each opens his or her mouth.

UPDATE: Holy sh*t, Joe Biden just uttered a non-appalling sentiment! When asked how he’d deal with Iran acquiring nuclear weapons, Biden said (paraphrasing), The first thing I’d do is end this policy of regime-change. We’re saying to Iran: get rid of the only thing that keeps us from attacking you, then we’ll attack you.

He then followed up by grunting that he’d “take out” any weapon Iran may build. Ho-hum. Status quo ante.

UPDATE 2: Biden has since taken credit for the U.S. intervention in the Balkans and sworn to bomb Sudan real good.

FINAL: It’s too dispiriting to list and rebut every wrongheaded policy on sale tonight, so I won’t. Suffice to say that, despite the frequent references by CNN’s John King to the strength of the antiwar movement among Democratic voters, each of the candidates with a shot at becoming president or vice president is a committed imperialist. If this is how they play to their supposedly antiwar base, imagine what they’ll be saying when they turn right after the primaries.
