The Other McCain agrees with me

The Other: “One of the basic principles of military strategy is to reinforce success. If you see a man who fights and wins, give him reinforcements, and bid others to emulate his success. It’s like the time when Abraham Lincoln was urged to relieve U.S. Grant of command because Grant was accused of having been drunk on duty. Lincoln answered bluntly: “I can’t spare this man. He fights.” It’s also like the time when Robert E. Lee, confronted at Richmond with George McClellan’s much larger Union force, decided to send a division of his little army to the Shenandoah Valley to reinforce Stonewall Jackson. Lee said, “We must aid a gallant man if we perish.”

Umm. Guess who applied this same concept, these same words, to Rush Limbaugh, three weeks ago?  All I can say is, God Damned Right! Great minds think alike.
