Taranto on liberal yearning for defeat

Best of the Web makes a good point -- Sheehan's foolishness has exposed the idiot left in two ways:
For one, it reveals that very few people on the antiwar left have any compunction at all about making common cause with someone who espouses virulent anti-American and anti-Semitic views. For another, it showed something we've long suspected: that some on the left--and not just the America-hating fringe--want America to lose this war. Here's an editorial for today's Seattle Times:

America's purpose in Iraq is over. The soldiers should be brought home. It can be done, as has been proven in Vietnam, Somalia and other places.

Vietnam, a humiliating defeat that left America bitterly divided for a generation, and Somalia, which emboldened Osama bin Laden, are, according to the Seattle Times, the models for the conduct of a war.

Stupid is as stupid does.
