Look - What's That in the Distance?

Busy here at Netroots Nation - but had to post something regarding Bush's semantic flip flop - his new "General time horizon" in Iraq.

At first it seems like he might be considering a change of position. But then I thought about it a bit more. The horizon is something that never gets closer. The terrain of the horizon may change but it always maintains its distance. The horizon only gets closer if you believe the world is flat and you are about to fall off of the edge. I know that Bush is not too bright but I think he would agree that the world is in fact round.

Thus a more accurate statement would be that Bush is considering a framework for a new "withdrawal mirage" from Iraq. Or better yet - how about the - reaching the pot of withdrawal at the end of the Iraq rainbow - strategy!
