I see, via Calpundit, that Republicans might want to re-think the "let's call the 4-star General a lily-livered, commie-loving, America-hating hippy" strategy.

From the Wesley Clark interview on FOX:
Fox: On Meet the Press you said something about Iraq. You said, "President Bush has said [the war in Iraq] is the centerpiece for the war on terror. It isn't. It's a sideshow. It's simply their easiest means of access to attack American soldiers. That's all it is."

Do you really think Iraq is only a sideshow?

Clark: For the war on terror it's a terrible distraction. We should have gone directly after Osama bin Laden....We should be putting a full court effort on finding Osama bin Laden....

Fox: While our men and women are dying in Iraq, is it proper to call it a sideshow?

Clark: Our men and women in Iraq are doing a fabulous job....Don't you dare twist words into disrespect for our men and women in uniform....You better take my words the right way....

Amen. The General has been good about taking challenges in stride, but this is one charge that he should and does get righteously angry about. There's no time for that kind of trash, and I'm glad he's stopping it dead in its tracks.
