Q Scott, is the insurgency in Iraq in its 'last throes'?I mean, you hafta laugh. Hard. One day, these turkeys (AKA Busk lackeys) will answer a question honestly and surprise us all.
Q But the insurgency is in its last throes?
Q But they're killing more Americans, they're killing more Iraqis. That's the last throes?
Q Right. What is the evidence that the insurgency is in its last throes?
Q What's the evidence on the ground that it's being extinguished?
Q Well, I'm just wondering what the metric is for measuring the defeat of the insurgency.
Q Yes. Is there any idea how long a "last throe" lasts for?
I toast Moran for his persistance. All journalists should be this dogged with this (any) administration's waffling/prevaricating.
And tangentially, Is there any idea how long a 'last throe' lasts for? Man, that's comedy gold!
Drum also suggests that "maybe the White House should institute 'wiki-briefings' that allow us all to go in and edit the transcripts." Oh, man, that's rich, too.
