I though McCain lacked energy tonight, but he did get off a few great lines – and this one was a one of the best:
Our choice wasn’t between a benign status quo and the bloodshed of war.
It was between war and a graver threat. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Not our critics abroad. Not our political opponents.
And certainly not a disingenuous film maker who would have us believe that Saddam’s Iraq was an oasis of peace when in fact it was a place of indescribable cruelty, torture chambers, mass graves and prisons that destroyed the lives of the small children held inside their walls.
I may not always agree with John McCain on all the issues, but damn am I glad he’s on our side.
