Cuttin' and Runnin'

Via Kevin Drum: I see this item in Newsweek that shows that the Democrats' plan for a timetable for withdrawal from Iraq is not only supported by the vast majority of Americans, but also by the new Iraqi government.
And now it seems to be confirmed in this NYTimes story that we will be drawing down troops during the next year, almost as rapidly as Sen. John Kerry had proposed.
So if the American public, the Democratic Party, the Iraqi government and the U.S. military are all in favor of a timetable for withdrawing troops, who does that leave on the other side? Why the Republicans, of course, and a bunch of conservative bloggers, who favor keeping our troops mired in Iraq untile Hell freezes over. Apparently, they think that is somehow supposed to be a winning formula for the Nov. general elections.
