Mickey Kaus wonders what the heck MSM types who praise Chuck Hagel’s courage are talking about:
Saying “the war was wrong but the surge is worth a try”–that would be courageous. There’s no ready-made constituency eager to cheer a pol who says that.
Bucking your party to actively fight against the war when it would have made a difference–that would have been courageous.**
Hagel hasn’t done either of those things. Instead, he let loose at the precise moment when letting loose was least brave and least timely.
Kaus also notes a parallel between Hagel and Barbara Boxer.
