I can't say I'm really surprised that the Republicans are still going on about the war and how gosh-darned great it was, and how much safer we all are because of it. What does surprise me is that they continue to portray the invasion and subsequent occupation of Iraq as if it were a logical extension of the war on terror. To hear Republicans tell it, Iraq was simply another front in a neverending war. I heard a woman on NPR still repeating the tired lie that Iraq and Al Qaeda were strongly connected, and that we were in imminent danger. Do they still believe? Idiots.
