Desperately Seeking Goalposts

Tony Snow has a momentary lapse during the daily press briefing, and unwittingly provides material to historians who will write about this war:
Q: One on Iraq again. Sorry. Just the simple question: Are we winning?

MR. SNOW: We're making progress. I don't know. How do you define "winning"?
It's amazing that only a generation after Vietnam, one can reasonably ask that question again.

In the end, the neocons will define winning as "not getting killed as the last chopper lifts off from the embassy".

You can't ask the Democrats...they can only define the term 'losing'.

Tony Snow and Ronnie Reagan would have made a good "traveling medicine show". Too bad he got #43 as a sidekick instead.
