Blather. Wince. Repeat.

In commemoration of the 2000th death in Iraq, Bush has a great idea:

He's going to explain why invading Iraq was such a brilliant idea.


Anticipating a barrage of criticism when the death toll hits 2,000, Bush will try to put the sacrifice in perspective by portraying the Iraq war as the best way to keep terrorists from striking the United States again, the official said. He will make the same case in another speech Friday in Norfolk. Although Bush has made this case often, aides hope the public will be more receptive in the aftermath of the apparently successful referendum vote for a new Iraqi constitution, whose official results will be announced this week.

Apparently he thinks that we all will agree that invading Iraq was just what the doctor ordered, if only the Parrot-In-Chief says the same thing one more time.

By the way - there are times when I think the press has really started to dislike the boy. The picture accompanying the Washington Post article at the link is a shot of Bush grinning like an idiot, while Karl Rove stands behind him, also grinning like an idiot.
