The Triumph of Orthodoxy

I couldn't resist forwarding this piece from the BBC, including this delicious tidbit,

In particular, two leading neo-cons, Richard Perle and Kenneth Adelman, attacked the Bush team in Vanity Fair magazine. Both had been on a Pentagon advisory board. Both had argued for war in Iraq.

In an article called "Neo Culpa", Richard Perle declared that had he known how it would turn out, he would have been against it: "I think now I probably would have said: 'No, let's consider other strategies'."

No comment necessary. Wait: one comment necessary, conservativism is dead in the water. Mark my words. Two years of Democratic control in Washington and the complete failure of conservative social and foreign policy have shown Americans that the far right is way wrong.
