Strawspeak

Language---its use and abuse---has been a consistent theme in this space. So when I see a by-the-book wire service like the AP run a piece like this, it's encouraging. It's also an indication that the worm, at long last, really is turning.

Did you check out the 3/19 AP article Bush Marks Anniversary, Never Says 'War'. Something is happening at AP.

Bush is a lame duck, and the GOP is trying to distance itself from him.

So GOP-friendly media aren't so much for Bush any more, they're on the verge of deciding which Republican they'll be for to oppose Busha and heroicly lead the GOP into a new winning election cycle.

When you have low capabilities, you have to set the bar even lower. GWB's entire campaign was based on attacking strawmen. Continued attacks on the far left and 'liberals' consolidated support among his base and kept moderates from casting votes for the democrats. It was always about defeating them rather than winning on any merits he might have.

I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
the indexes easily.

Take a look at Wallstreetwinnersonline.com

There are mistake with language everywhere. It is sad to know that press can make a mistake with it. They should be the one that they have to defend it.
