Andy Starting to See the Light 

Andrew Sullivan is slowly shaking off the befuddlement of having been duped into trusting the inexcusably incompetent...

The one anti-war argument that, in retrospect, I did not take seriously enough was a simple one. It was that this war was noble and defensible but that this administration was simply too incompetent and arrogant to carry it out effectively. I dismissed this as facile Bush-bashing at the time. I was wrong. I sensed the hubris of this administration after the fall of Baghdad, but I didn't sense how they would grotesquely under-man the post-war occupation, bungle the maintenance of security, short-change an absolutely vital mission, dismiss constructive criticism, ignore even their allies (like the Brits), and fail to shift swiftly enough when events span out of control.

Well that was only one place we were right, but baby steps Andy. Baby steps. So does this mean you're off the Bush-wagon? I mean, he's trying to prevent everyone of your sexual orientation from having rights equal to those of his own and now you acknowledge that he's completely fucked up your pet "humanitarian" war. How much is too much? When does the straw do some back breaking?
