CONFIDENCE MAN….Mr. Straight Talk on the surge:

John McCain just told Harry Reid and Dick Durbin that it’s impossible to support the troops unless you support the mission. “A vote of no confidence is a vote of no confidence in the men and women who are serving in the military.”

So I guess this means Congress can never try to wind down any military conflict. Because that would demonstrate a lack of confidence in our troops.

Unless they happen to be in Somalia, of course.

UPDATE: Or in Vietnam! Or Beirut!
