Heads I Win; Tails You Lose

The hypocrisy of the Democrats and their opposition to the war in Iraq was on full display this past Sunday. Check out this exchange from Meet the Press:

MR. RUSSERT: But if the constitution goes down, psychologically, isn't that a setback?
SEN. LEVIN: It is a setback, but the constitution, if it's adopted, is also a setback.

What a wonderful position for the Democrats to be in. If they constitution passes, they declare it a setback. If it fails, they declare it a setback. In short, nothing that Bush does and nothing that happens on the ground in Iraq will ever be acknowledged as a success by Levin and his ilk. They are so committed to to their worldview that they will never admit anything has gone right. This fact has profound implications for the future of public policy debates among our leaderes. There is no way to take a political party seriously when it refuses to deal with the facts and simply declares failure regardless of reality.
