Recently surfed over to Neo Neocon for her interview with Washington State pol Steve Beren. A former anti-war activist turned Republican office seeker. He has some interesting things to say on the rhetoric of war protesters.

What Steve Beren is saying about antiwar strategy can be put this way: If we had made a different choice in 2003 and invaded North Korea, the Bush Administration’s opponents would have spent the last three years bitching about why Bush wasn’t doing anything about the obvious problems in Iraq.
It doesn’t matter which battle your political adversary chooses to fight, as long as you consistently maintain the position that he picked the wrong battle. And if he decides to fight in more than one place, if he in fact chooses to fight ALL of the battles you say he should fight, you can always call him stupid for overextending himself.
