McCain Surrogate: The Truth About Iraq Undermines Our Troops (it's like watching a train wreck)

McCain Surrogate: The Truth About Iraq Undermines Our Troops

By Greg Sargent - July 23, 2008, 4:14PM

Ooooooooooo-kaaaaaaaay....

Now we have a McCain surrogate explaining away McCain's flubbing of the Anbar Awakening and surge timing by saying that asking for the truth about Iraq undermines the troops...

(Video: McCain Adviser: Facts on Iraq Undermine Our Troops)

We listened to that several times, and we're pretty sure that this McCain surrogate, Nancy Pfotenhauer, actually said...

"Barack Obama and his supporters can try to litigate what came first or what was crucial, but that's really an attempt to undermine the significance and the impact of the American troops and their sacrifice and their effort."

A Deluxe TPM Lava Lamp to anyone who can name a single thing about Obama's entire existence that doesn't undermine the troops at this point...

1. Facts have a known anti-troop bias.

3. "As if [our troops are] infantile hot-house flowers that wilt in the bright light of fact."
How fucking insulting to our troops, that getting history straight about how and why they're fighting can undercut their efforts. As if they're infantile hot-house flowers that wilt in the bright light of fact. Ugh.
