NO, Crazy John McCain, we did NOT have 'the conflict won' in Iraq

War, Bab-ey, War!

Bomb Bomb McCain made headlines on Morning Joe, and ole' Joe wasn't even phoning it in to comment. Morning Mika, David Gregory, John Heilemann and Sam Stein were all at bat.

Huffington's Stein even tried to nail down what Crazy John McCain de-lusion-ally [Lewis Black voice if you have one] thinks it means 'to have it won'.

Morning Mika had Round One. She wanted to know how much more the American people could be expected to spend on Iraq. John Heilemann (clearly sitting in for the meltdown-prone Schmoe Joe Scarborough as he virtually led the parade) and couldn't get McCain to commit to a firm 'air strike' fantasy call … but he did get The Quote. (H/t to David Garber for the you tubes linkage.)

What is the definition of victory? Stein asked. Unfortunately he preceded it by saying he was confused about McCain's position. I rather enjoyed @FineTweeter Glenn Moye's take.

He condescendingly patronized Sam Stein, completely pouncing on and abusing 'confused'. And refused to answer the question. "I'm sorry about your confusion .. but the facts were …" Props to Sam Stein, who came back with "I should have known that saying I'm confused could be used against me." And for letting McCain draw out more and more naval rope to knot and hang himself with. Twitter was all East Coastey atwitter. (Props to pal B Double.)

Hence, McCain fired the Bazooka. On record he has called for summarily "The totality of President Obama's National Security Team" … and by the top o' the next hour Mika had Big Daddy Zbig on the phone with a Brzezinski rebuttal. He urged a more measured neo-con response. Quelle surpreeze.

Always important to remember, however, that McCain could be on the Cantor path actually certified and led away attached to a Thorazine drip any day now. Oh, let that day be today!

For some facty-reality stuff, here's the incredible Richard Engel reporting on what is actually happening in Iraq. No matter what McCain is losing his feeble mind about.

Which is a get out the vote reminder if we've ever heard, November is but a heartbeat away.
