"Dear Republican Candidates, You Have us all Wrong" - Juan Cole

"Dear Rick Perry: We donít want our troops in Iraq. We donít think President Obama was too quick to get them out. We think he was too slow. We donít want to go back into Iraq militarily. We donít care if Iraqís Shiites like Iranís Shiites and we donít think that 18-year-old young men from Alabama and Louisiana with guns can convince them not to. And, the Iraqis donít want them there. President Obama did not err in his negotiations. There is *no* majority in the Iraqi parliament that would vote for having US troops on Iraqi soil."

3. Well, all he probably knows is that the public likes this God fellow.

About all you need these days to be a republican. Pat Robertson whispering in your ear about how you'll win.
