Today's quote

Reason magazine has a crafty piece in which they ask a host of pundits
  1. Did you support the invasion of Iraq?
  2. Have you changed your position?
  3. What should the U.S. do in Iraq now?
Answering the second question, their web editor Tim Cavanaugh observes:
The occupation has gone better than any prudent person had a right to expect, and the failure of so many hawks to understand this shows how unserious they were all along.
Boy howdy, does that ever say it.

I discovered this via a Crooked Timber post by Belle Waring in which she lifts out the answers of hawks Christopher Hitchens, Glenn Reynolds, and Louis Rossetto. If you don't have the patience for the whole Reason piece, check out those three and see if they don't prove Mr Cavanaugh's point.
