Thanks a lot, Rolling Stone.

Sure, the Taliban is gaining strength, Hamid Karzai is demonstrably out of his mind and Karzai's government isn't seen by its own people as legitimate. But that doesn't mean the war is hopeless! Hugh Hewitt, who is a smart guy, knows what the real problem is:

Anyway, tune in next week for the usual chest-beating about the demise of the lamestream media, which has no absolutely no influence whatsoever.
