This week, Gene Lyons channels Bob Somerby...
Try to believe that the following sentences appeared in the lead to a New York Times thumb sucker entitled "Dilemma's Definition: The Left and Iraq" by one David Carr: "This has been a tough war for commentators on the American left. To hope for defeat meant cheering for Saddam Hussein. To hope for victory meant cheering for President Bush."

Evidently, Carr is not a sports fan, or he'd have understood the concept of, say, cheering for the Arkansas Razorbacks while also thinking they need a new coach.
Or cheering for the Rams while carping about Mike Martz. It's a pretty obvious analogy that a liberal had to think up for the mental giants that make up the right.

(I was going to use Marty Mornhinweg and the Lions as an example, but seeing as how they were much more feeble in their field than the US military is in theirs, the underachieving Martz seemed like a much better analogy.)
