Once More, With Feeling

There's nothing wrong with having been spectacularly wrong on Iraq. It's what the prowar crowd has done since April 9 that's unforgivable. As Jonathan Last, writing in the Weekly Standard wrote on 4/24/03:

SOMETIMES it's necessary to beat a dead horse. Many recriminations pieces have been written since the end of the war (here, for starters) and while they may seem like simple gloating, they're not. It's crucial to keep score on public commentators because if you bat .115 in the bigs, you get canned.
