This is the way the wheels come off

· 2004 Election

Great comment from a reader of Kevin “CalPundit” Drum’s new Political Animal blog / column at The Washington Monthly:

A lot of my family are conservatives and they are turning on W. Some are just upset about deficit spending, but most are learning that lying about your sex life is nothing when compared to lying about why we should go to war. Plus, we’ve got family that was in Iraq for the invasion and will be going back soon, so war in Iraq is a very personal thing for the whole family. On the other hand, Clinton’s sex life isn’t our business.
