As if on cue, the braintrust puts up this little gem
blaming "anti-war protesters" for the debacle in Iraq. That's right - it is those bad "anti-war protesters" fault. Who knew they had so much power? If it were not for those "anti-war protesters" we'd be kicking ass. The stabbed in the back narrative has a long and storied history among right-wing movements seeking to explain the failures of conservative policies. And it's here now, in force. The right-wing in this country is working overtime to ensure that the Democrats and the media receive blame for the consequences of the war in Iraq and the failed war on terror rather than the right-wing leaders who are actually in charge.
