Winning some war, whichever one that is

On CNN's Late Edition this morning, Republican presidential candidate John McCain once again made this ridiculous claim: "I know how to win wars."

McCain actually said something remarkably similar (and stupid) about two weeks ago in Albuquerque.

Wolf Blitzer, showing that he is indeed no Tim Russert, failed to follow up with an important question: What does that even mean?

Is McCain speaking of Vietnam? Iraq? Afghanistan? Grenada? A culture war? What exactly constitutes victory in any of those conflicts? And do we have actual proof that he led or could lead the U.S. to a "win"?

If McCain is going to keep saying this, he should at least produce some sort of title belt or trophy or something.
