One Hundred Years of Crapitude
The SCLNYT takes another dive for the Hundred Year Old Man:
BY THE NEW YORK TIMES
Senator Barack Obama has come under some criticism for suggesting that his colleague in the Senate, John McCain, wants to stay in Iraq for 100 years, even though Mr. McCain was speaking hypothetically. Today in Pennsylvania, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton did not shy away from using that line of attack either.
At a speech at Hopewell High School in Aliquippa, Pa., Mrs. Clinton praised Mr. McCain, but then added that the Senator "has said that it would be alright with him if we kept troops in Iraq for up to 100 years and again yesterday, he basically reiterated his commitment to the course that we are on in Iraq. Well, I don't agree with that."
Of course, McCain wouldn't be in office long enough to make it to the 100th anniversary and couldn't legally commit American soldiers for 100 years. But it's indisputable that McCain wants a Century of Occupation, at the very least. And that's exactly what he said.
