Over the past few years, Atrios has been documenting the Friedmans; every few days he has a link to something said by someone in the administration, a congresscritter, or a cheerleader about how it is necessary to give the current situation in Iraq another six months. In each case, the quote is from six months earlier, and he’s been doing this for years, and some of the same characters crop up again and again and again.
And now that another Friedman has come and gone, so what? Well, we need another Friedman, or three. At which point we’ll need another. This is how the Hundred Years War became the Hundred Years War.
