The cycle of stupidity

Modern politics is horrible. What makes it especially worse is that it sometimes ends up costing lives.

Take "the surge", the plan by Bush to crack down on violence in Iraq. The idea was that increasing the troops would result in a drop off of attacks.

Naturally, right wing supporters of the President announced proudly that the strategy had worked and all those who disagreed with the plan were baby-eating serial killing atheists.

Then, of course, the real facts come out and everything has been proved wrong.

People get upset, the right wing start moaning about the evils of the MSM and how you can't trust them.

And then the cycle begins again.
