They used to write about the progress in Iraq on a regular basis. It seemed like every time a damn phone booth was installed in Baghdad conservative bloggers would write about it - seeking to turn some minor insignificant event like that into some drum-pounding, flag-waving star-spangled victory.
And now... now that we see actual examples of real progress, the right wing self-proclaimed 'fighting keyboardists' are sucking their thumbs like the rest of the Republican leadership.
The head of U.S. Central Command said Sunday that Al Qaeda is no longer operating in Afghanistan, with its senior leadership having moved to the western region of Pakistan.
Gen. David Petraeus said affiliated groups have "enclaves and sanctuaries" in Afghanistan and that "tentacles of Al Qaeda" have touched countries throughout the Middle East and northern Africa. But he said the terrorist group has suffered" very significant losses" in recent months, and agreed with Afghan President Hamid Karzai's recent assessment that there is no Al Qaeda based in his country.
Democrats = real results - unlike Republican "Mission Accomplished" bullshit.
But the extent to which that the war blogging right have fallen silent as real progress is made underlines the hypocrisy of the Republican Party.
