The Left fakes Right

After six long years of pandering to the primates of Kos and Huffpo, the Democrats have suddenly discovered the War on Terror.  Didn't you notice? That's because they didn't tell anybody. It's a stealthy flip, right in the middle of the dog days of August when nobody is paying attention. The Party Line just flipped.

Suddenly Demcrats are sounding responsible.
"We've begun to change tactics in Iraq, and in some areas, particularly in Al Anbar province, it's working. We're just years too late changing our tactics. We can't ever let that happen again. We can't be fighting the last war. We have to be preparing to fight the new war.And this new war requires different tactics and strategies. We've got to be prepared to maintain the best fighting force in the world." 
That may not sound like the real Hillary Clinton, but it is.  Sure she's still blaming Bush, but the tone is very different.

And those two old jowly hound dogs of the US Senate, Carl Levin and John Warner, just came back from a photo-op to Iraq --- and behold,
"The two reported that they are encouraged by the effects of the recent U.S. military surge there, but their enthusiasm is tempered by concerns about Iraq's political climate."  
(John Warner must not want to get macaca'd by the WaPo, the way Senator George Allen was when he ran for re-eleciton. The Washington Post kept George Allen's "macaca" blooper in the news for weeks and weeks, until finally Allen's campaign crashed. So Warner is sashaying Left while Levin is boogying Right. It's one of these pair dancing things.)

The funny thing is that the media are pretending nothing has changed. But on Iraq and national security, the whole top Democrat apparatus has suddenly moved from the Far Left to the Middle Right. This may be the most historic political skedaddle since Hitler invaded Soviet Russia, turning all the Party Members in the world against the Nazis. It's almost like Uncle Joe was still sending orders from the Comintern in Moscow.

The biggest question, of course is: Are the Dems realizing the error of their ways? Or are they just Faking Right, like Meadowlark Lemon and the  Harlem Globetrotters?

I can't read minds. But after the last six years, doesn't this disciplined flip look like a fake-out?
