Kinda like Saddam Hussein and the "mother of all battles."

1. If you don't go their funeral, they won't come to yours
That paraphrase from Yogi Berra seems to fit in well with the logical theme you've presented.

2. Don't be so literal minded

Fighting to the embarassment, disappointment, etc. maybe. But nobody's talking about death, for pete's sake.

The only way a democracy can survive is if you have opposition.

The otehr cliche "picking our battles" hasn't been working. Why continue to do it? Especially since the opposition who were criticized by the Democratic "conventional wisdom" have been shown to be correct. Remember those crazy, out of step "fringe" opponents of the Iraq War, who didn't choose to listen to the DLC mantras about "picking our battles"?

4. Snarf.
Nice Arguement You Are NOT Making Here.

Learned helplessness is a very ugly thing.
