The man with a plan

The current Democratic line is that, in 2003, with the information then available, it was the right decision to go into Iraq. In 2004, when our invasion yielded new information challenging the only information available in 2003, we learned that the 2003 information was inaccurate. Therefore, said Kerry at the first debate, on behalf of the Democrats, we should have known better in 2003 than to go into Iraq. I say, you can only make a decision based on the information you have. The Democrats seem to forget that fact, although Kerry definitely has some plans. The man promises a plan on everything; he just likes to keep the details close to his chest. Kerry reminds me of that classic Monty Python sketch with John Cleese as a befuddled housewife on a talk show who had a new theory about the brontosaurus. She spent a good 10 minutes of the sketch repeatedly stating something along the lines of “This is my theory. I have an entirely new theory about the brontosaurus.” When finally pressed very hard to divulge her theory, she pointed to a picture of a Brontosaurus and announced, “All brontosauruses are thin at one end, much MUCH thicker in the middle, and then thin again at the far end. That is the theory that I have and which is mine, and what it is too.” I wonder what Kerry’s secret plans will finally reveal themselves to be.
