Ironist In Chief

Bush raises volume on campaign charge - 4 Oct 2006 at 1:20pm - SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- President Bush on Wednesday claimed Democrats can't be trusted to protect the nation from terrorist attacks. "Vote Republican for the safety of the United States," he said.
...Apparently forgetting, momentarily, to what extent his "no-fly-swatting" policy vis-à-vis terrorism contributed to the United States' vulnerability in the months preceding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Congress sets aside $20M for wars' ends - 4 Oct 2006 at 12:54pm - WASHINGTON -- The military's top generals have warned Iraq is on the cusp of a civil war and that U.S. troops must remain in large numbers until at least next spring. But if the winds suddenly blow a different direction, Congress is ready to celebrate with a $20 million victory party.
I guess the good news is that, since the Iraq war either is unwinnable, or was won long ago -- depending on how one defines its objectives -- that $20 million should never have to be spent.

Wait, Wait... We already won this one! We went in to get rid of their WMDs. Since they didn't have any to begin with, we can declare victory and go home. Can't we....?

Right on, dancer. Since there were no WMDs, I guess we didn't have to send any troops to begin with -- we could simply have had the $20-million party instead.
