The Fog of Logic

The Portland Press Herald runs a confused and confusing editorial that expresses these three sentiments:

1. "There's no question that what we're doing now [in Iraq] is failing."

2. "The president seems unwilling to change course."

3. "The need to get the Bush administration to reverse course is clear."
And yet--here's the kicker--the editorial is largely sympathetic to the junior senator's refusal to support any legislative attempts to force the President's hand.

I know these things are often written by committee. But if anyone can square that circle, I'd like to know.

The PPH is trying badly to be a non-jackboot licking Bush failed policy paper supporter. Being sympathetic to Susan Collins is the proof of this, especially since she mainly votes eight out of ten times for his failed and anti-American policies!
