Calling the Kettle Black

October 29, 2006

Democrats cannot be trusted to control Congress because they do not know how to win the war in Iraq.

    Theoretically Dems do not know how to win the war in Iraq, but;

    it has already been proven that Repubs do not know how to win the war in Iraq.

    There are so many words in the original sentence with extremely flexible meaning: Democrats, trust, control, because, win, war. I’d say that the statement borders on the totally meaningless. Is there a clearly delineated war? What, for that matter, is “Iraq”? (Who drew the borders? Is it a “nation-state”?) How is “control” of Congress linked, specifically [and causally, in the above statement], with the war in Iraq? (I.e. doesn’t Congress do more than wage war?) Who, exactly, is doing the trusting here? (The paraphrase (nearly a direct quote) was as I’m sure is clear culled from a couple of Bush’s recent speeches, in Indiana and California.)

    I should have known it was a trick question.

    My comment works as a Dem response to such criticism, though. Equally meaningless, ergo equally potentially “true.” Calling the Pot Black, if you will.
