Wingnuttery 101

Stanley Kurtz gives us a glimpse of what the upper level courses in wingnuttery might look like:

This morning, The National Review's Stanley Kurtz explained the real purpose of U.S. operations in Iraq:

We need to see peace and democracy in Iraq is icing on the cake. The real goal is the proof of resolve against Iran and others. If the public sees that, it might change its view of what's important and what success means.

So you kill lots of people because that would scare some other people but what you really want is to make some third group of people notice that you have a big one. Get it? All worth doing, somehow.

I need to go and lie down now.
