Hugh Hewitt's The Durbin Effect

From The Weekly Standard: rather than argue against the war, Durbin and Pelosi are going to argue US Troops are barbaric.
Demonizing the American military in order to advance an anti-war agenda is, of course, familiar to those who recall the end of the Vietnam War. Most had believed that September 11 put that playbook on the shelf for good. Wrong. It is in wide use among the left and their spokesmen and women in the leadership of the Democratic party.
I recall the end of the Vietnam War. I recall McGovern (I voted for him). This damages America but it will mean the end of the Democratic party. This is a catastrophic political strategy Durbin's setting for his party.
