Invested in defeat

Rush Limbaugh has been saying for months, if not years, that Democratic officials are invested in American defeat. Over in the tank, Mario Loyola agrees. And he's correct.
Democratic-party leaders are faced with Hobson's choice. They must play the pessimist's part – it is the only way to maintain their majority. Anything else is political suicide for them. They are irretrievably invested in defeat. They therefore have to deny that we are making progress, no matter how obvious that progress is — and no matter how relieved they are, deep down inside, as Americans, that we are making it.

While they would deny that they're looking to lose, the fact is that they're deeply dependent on the US losing in Iraq, and it really isn't debatable...
