Oh, and I see that a pro-war petition at John McCain's campaign Web site is titled "Surrender Is Not an Option" -- which is also the title of John Bolton's forthcoming book.

Beyond the tough talk, is this yet another sign of the Hollywoodization of the GOP right? In real life, Gene Kranz, the NASA flight director, reportedly did say, "Failure is not an option" -- but did the general public know that before the release of the movie Apollo 13? Are Bolton and McCain evoking Krantz or Ed Harris?
