    You keep using that word. I do not think
    it means, what you think it means.


    I don't want to take up the 101st Fighting Keyboarders constant use of the term meme when discussing the fact that the public is finally starting to realize through drip drip drip of revelations that they were suckered into an unnecessary war by an insular group of power-mad lunatics with delusions of competence. Suffice it to say, it's not a meme and you don't look any smarter for using it so you might want to go back to misusing paradigm and build from there.

    On the other hand I do want to talk about President Word-A-Day-Calendar's and others use of 'revisionist history':

    THE PUSHBACK CONTINUES: N.Z. Bear has posted Bush's latest remarks on revisionist history. Key bit: "Some of our elected leaders have opposed this war all along. I disagree with them, but I respect their willingness to take a consistent stand. Yet some Democrats who voted to authorize the use of force are now rewriting the past. They are playing politics with this issue and sending mixed signals to our troops and the enemy. That is irresponsible."

    That is not revisionism. Revisionism is the ongoing parade of everchanging rationales for attacking a Iraq that included WMD's that didn't exist, a connection to 9/11 that didn't exist, and then the "Oh, what we really really wanted was to bring democracy to the Middle East even if it is at the point of a gun" whopper.

    When a Congressman or a Senator says "I made a mistake" it is (besides a miracle) an admission that they are willing to take responsibility for having erred because the intelligence that they were given was pumped full of steroids by an administration that should never have been believed in the first place. That's not revisionism; that's coming clean.

    To be blunt, the Bush White House is full of lying cocksuckers who wanted the war to prop themselves up, deflect from their failure to find Osama bin Laden, empty the treasury for their friends, and fulfill the chickenhawk fantasies of the neo-cons who wanted to deeply insert American military might into the Middle East.

    In the near future, historians (real historians, not pundit dabblers) of the non-revisionist kind will sift through the wreckage of American foreign policy during the Bush years and the truth about the run-up to the invasion of Iraq will come out, and they will show us that the intelligence was manipulated, thousands died needlessly, and the American public was lied to. And yes, in a time of lying cocksuckers, cocks were sucked.

    But enough about Judy Miller.
