29. You're only kidding yourself.
Georgia's invasion was a neocon project through-and-through for the benefit of the neocons, timed for maximum impact while McBombs is at his peak on the world stage. Among other things it was designed to steer media coverage and discussion away from the tanking U.S. economy and the Republicans' many failures and keep it on national security/war issues which happen to be the only thing McBombs is perceived (wrongly) to have an advantage on. The neocons thought the project would be mutually beneficial to: 1) Themselves, and 2) their buddy Saak with his low approval rating.
