Fail Quote of the Day: McCain says “Mission Accomplished” in Iraq War!

| »

It’s celebration time, people! The Iraq War is over and the US won!

Wait, haven’t you heard? Of course the US won the war – just take it from Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona)!:

On July 15, I [Marjorie Cohn, professor at Thomas Jefferson School of Law] attended a reception in Washington DC to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the normalization of relations between the United States and Vietnam. Geoff Millard and I spoke to Sen. John McCain. When Geoff introduced himself as chairman of the board of Iraq Veterans against the War, McCain retorted, "You're too late. We already won that one."

See? It’s true! Woo-hoo!

Unless … wait, what’s that? Déjà-vu, is it called? I see something … a banner … a stupid speech … a failed promise … oh, there it is:

Demotivator: “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: Not Exactly”
