I get the fact that Bill Kristol and John Bolton really, really want to see Iran get bombed. My question is: why are they talking about this so much in the midst of a political campaign when polling shows the American people oppose bombing Iran.
I can think of a couple of possibilities that would explain their bellicosity. The first is that they are simply goading the Bush administration to take action. The second is that they are simply trying to lay the groundwork or change public opinion. But, it seems to me as though they’re doing John McCain a big disservice.
