100 Years In Iraq?

McCain on the occupation of Iraq: "It Doesn't Matter...We Could Be There For A Hundred Years, For All I Know."

But it does matter to some people.

Digby has noted that the right-wingers standardized hissy fit over any ad by MoveOn has been internalized by the MSM. Chuck Todd and the MSNBC gang, for no discernible reason, spouted the wing-nut line that the ad will backfire... never mind the fact that two out of three Americans say the war in Iraq hasn't been worth it.
ABC News/Washington Post Poll. June 12-15, 2008. N=1,125 adults nationwide. MoE ± 3. Fieldwork by TNS.
"All in all, considering the costs to the United States versus the benefits to the United States, do you think the war with Iraq was worth fighting, or not?"
Worth It --------- 34%

Not Worth It --- 63%

Unsure ----------- 3%
