37. Hey, I supported the invasion of Iraq.
I believed the New Republic and Tony Blair. I thought we were going to accomplish something that was a net positive for the people of Iraq.

I wasn't an obnoxiously rah-rah supporter; I didn't give my fellow Democrats a hard time for opposing it because I was always skeptical. But I did support it; I thought our military and our intelligence community surely knew what they were doing, with all the time they'd had surveying the situation, and that we could surely pacify a small country with a seriously depleted capability to fight back in a reasonable amount of time, and get a humane government in place.

I do apologize for my stupidity on occasion in here, just felt like doing it again.

Anyway, I realized that people like the bozos editing and running the New Republic were among the worst kinds of "concern trolls." These people so want to be the kewl kid Republicans it hurts.

And it's been a painful realization, because I really respected that publication, and at times I still want to.

Well, enough of my yakkin'.
