You've Got to be Kidding

If this is what now counts as a "gotcha", it's going to be an excrutiatingly long campaign season. Via The Corner, Clive Davis crows:
"I might as well remind Barack Obama that the war in Iraq hasn't lasted longer than WW2. There were, in fact, some isolated outbreaks of fighting before Pearl Harbour."

Call me old-fashioned, but I really don't think that a war length defined by the declaration war and the following peace treaty is a particularly non-conformist definition. And besides, even if we were to use Davis' definition, wouldn't that then count the decade-plus of bombings, air raids, and sanctions that the US and UK performed?
