I’m In Ur Think Tank
Supporting Ur Opponents’ Policeez

Brookings Institution scholar Michael O’Hanlon, who I’m given to understand would have received a high-level appointment in a Kerry administration, and co-author of a recent book on “what the Democrats need to do” about national security policy, feels the urge to surge. As we’ve seen previously, O’Hanlon’s Brookings colleague Ken Pollack feels much the same way.

My advice to Democrats in congress and hoping to run for president would be to stop listening to these guys.

UPDATE: Elsewhere in the liberal hawk multiverse, Jeffrey Herf explains that the Bush administration’s long record of incompetence is a good reason to support the surge.
