Via Neil Sinhababu, Rep. Tom Davis (R)’s twenty page strategy memo for Republicans observes that the Iraq War is “the ultimate cultural issue, fueling and giving oxygen to the cultural left, as well as planting doubts in many swing voters’ minds about the direction of the country.”

Of course it’s also an actual war in which over 100,000 Americans are risking their lives, in which tens of thousands of Americans have been wounded, millions of Iraqis displaced, many people killed, hundreds of billions spent, etc., etc., etc. But maybe that goes without saying?
