Dateline: According to the braintrust running our country we are no longer engaged in the war on terror. No, we are now involce in The Struggle Against Extremeism. Apparently the war on terror was not polling well. Either that or the word war was turning people off since we are not doing so well. We are, after all, used to kicking some ass and getting out and winning our wars. But now that we are engaged in a struggle, well, as Stephen Colbert says in this report from the Daily Show (hat tip crooks and liars for the link), “a struggle is something we can live with…like the weight on our hips.”
This mess is going so well the damned adminstration has to re-brand it. What asses.
