Not really. As General Paetraues explains, we've got a mess on our hands. But last month when I read this post by Dr. Sanity, I couldn't imagine it would be long before I would repost her 'sure signs of the surge's success?'
Dr. Sanity's blog consists of almost nothing but graceless posts passed off as psychological insights. It all seems intended to demean anyone who dares to disagree with her extremist politics, which is just asking for it since she is both mean and wrong so often.
SURE SIGNS OF THE SURGE'S SUCCESS ?
1. The Democrats are no longer talking about it.
2. The whiney left is no longer talking about it.
3. The Media is talking about everything else except for it.
If the signs of the surge's success were 'sure,' I wonder why the question mark? Pretty strange stuff. Maybe Dr. Sanity has gone PoMo on us.
Going back a little further in time, I remember that it was the same Dr. Sanity who referred to the 'media and their masters' (huh?) as paranoid in this bizarre rant:
Here we have the media and their masters on the Left in full-blown paranoid mode. I'm not even sure they are capable anymore of understanding how destructive and irrational their behavior has become. But their descent into hysteria and delusion seems to have no bottom....
The media and their masters? Just who is paranoid?
Comparing the left to a psychotic patient (oh brother), Dr. 'Sanity' says:
I remember one paranoid individual who was convinced that he had Hodgkins Lymphoma... [when] test results and xrays that clearly demonstrated that he was actually okay and in good health... he came in convinced he was dying of colon cancer. The doctors referrred him to psychiatry at that point.
All of this was to argue that things in Iraq were going well and that those who suggested otherwise were just like Dr. Sanity's psychotic patient whose illness was nothing more than a hypochondriacal delusion. And this is what Dr. Sanity had to say about Afghanastan and Iraq in response to the allegedly psychotic left and the psychotic media and the media's psychotic masters, all of whom were noticing problems in Iraq.
Afghanistan is in good shape and very healthy. Iraq is in good shape and getting healthier. Our economy is doing superbly (even the price of gasoline is going down and not up). By all standards; and all tests; America is healthy and strong.
I don't know why Dr. Sanity chose the name Dr. Sanity, but as she points an accusatory diagnostic finger in every direction except toward herself, I wonder if she ever ponders the line from Hamlet, 'the lady doth protest too much, methinks.'
