You forgot Poland

I suspect Democrats will be using the "you forgot Poland" soundbite rather more times than Republicans in the coming weeks. Here's Warblogging's take on this classic debate moment:

How could John Kerry forget Poland in naming President Bush's "allies" in the invasion and occupation of Iraq? It's not like there are so many you can't keep track.

Note, of course, that Kerry and Bush were talking about countries that actually contributed to the invasion of Iraq. There were only a few of those. America. Britain. Australia. Poland. That's it. Afghanistan, Albania, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan and others simply offered their empty "moral support" or a few bucks. In exchange for a few bucks more in US foreign aid, generally.
