Falling Back into Old Habits

The Bush Administration has had a rough row of it the past couple of years. Fueled by the (mis)handling of the Iraq war, post-Katrina recovery (not to mention the near-constant promotion or adulation of those who make serious mistakes), etc., it has not been a happy-go-lucky time for the Bushies. What do you do when your political back is against the wall? Take it to the next level (guys in backwards hats who have subscriptions to Maxim will use the term "go big or go home" to describe this typ of situation).

But how do you do this? If you are a member of the Bush administration, you accuse your opponents of being: (a) cowards; (b) morons; (c) unpatriotic; or (d) all of the above. It worked for the 2004 election, so they've gone back to the tried-and-true.


Oh, and don't forget to mention September 11 as much as possible:

However, VP Cheney does not pay attention to his boss's statements, who made clear the week prior that Iraq had nothing to with 9/11 (thankfully, there is even video), not to mention his statements of 3 years ago. Then again, consistency and accuracy did not win the White House, so who am I to nitpick?
