Rummy: No More Insurgents

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld today announced that because of "an epiphany" he had over the weekend, he will no longer use the term "insurgents" to describe those attacking coalition and Iraqi troops (and civilians) in Iraq. Said Rummy "I thought to myself, 'You know, that gives them greater legitimacy than they seem to merit.'"

As an alternative, Rumsfeld suggested the ever-so-elegant "Enemies of the legitimate Iraqi government. How's that?"

Honestly. How about some time spent on epiphanies about how to clean up Iraq and get our troops out of there and less about what to call those who are killing them?

We're talking about an administration that buys its own spin, somehow convinced that what they say will actually alter reality.

Hey, he did promise to end the insurgency, didn't he?

At one press conference with one paragraph of copy, he single-handedly ended the insurgency.

Wow he's good.
