Same as the old boss

Pre-emptive war? Well, why not? I mean, it's always worked so well in the past:

"Republican Sen. John McCain refused Wednesday to rule out a pre-emptive war against another country, although he said one would be very unlikely.

The likely Republican presidential nominee was asked Wednesday at a town-hall style meeting if he would reject "the Bush doctrine of pre-emptive war," a reference to Bush's decision to invade Iraq without it having attacked the United States." [...]

"McCain said he would consult more closely and more carefully "not with every member of Congress, but certainly the leaders of Congress.""

So that means what? He'd email 3 or 4 people about it and then it's "Yee-haw, bombs away!!!"? Well, that's reassurring! Thank god Bush's pre-emptive war doctrine so totally decimated the Republican Party that they won't be in power for another umpteen-million years.. err...
