Spin Cycle

Thankfully, it appears we're finally getting serious about Iraq instead of fiddling with spin and empty catchphrases. Details here.

LOCKHART (reading): "Not While We're Eating--N.V.A. learn marines on a search and destroy mission don't like to be interrupted while eating chow." Search and destroy. Uh, we have a new directive from M.A.F. on this. In the future, in place of "search and destroy," substitute the phrase "sweep and clear." Got it?

JOKER: Got it. Very catchy.

Oh, to have been a fly on the wall during the "brainstorming" session which produced this new piece of nonsense. They never run out.

While we're proving our 80's film geek accumen, this seems as good a time as any to bust out the old "I need a bucket."

I believe it's "Get me a bucket."

While we're on this pedantic kick (of which I'm a fan, I assure you), the quotation seems to be, "Better get a bucket."

Either way, the spin is vomit-worthy.

True. But, too many people still swallow anything this admin spews that it might work. A month from now we should know whether it's sufficiently sticky as a slogan.

Doesn't that just imply they haven't been trying to win until now?
