"Let's snorkenpuffle from Iraq!"

Thanks to Atrios, I'm now smitten with Once Upon a Time, a blog "about culture and politics, and the narratives that inform them." Hot stuff.

Check out this wonderful post, "Some Guy Named Kaplan" — and Let's Snorkenpuffle from Iraq!. Here's a taste.
But two things drive Limbaugh and the other Bush propagandists into an apoplectic rage: first, the perception that Bush is caving in to those same critics and following their advice; and second, that we're "withdrawing" from Iraq. If we're withdrawing, that means, of course, that we're doing just what Bush said we never could do: we're giving in to the terrorists. We're letting the terrorists win. We're being weak. So they need to call it something else: a redeployment, a shift in troop strength dictated by other requirements — anything but a withdrawal.

If it helps to bring this catastrophe any closer to an end more quickly, I'll very happily give Bush and his Merrie Band of Warmongers both points. Bush isn't doing anything like what his critics have suggested. It's entirely different! It's not at all the same. Why on earth would he listen to America-hating Saddamites anyway??!!! He wouldn't, not ever. Whatever he does, he thought of it all by himself, just like Condi told him. He's doing what's best for America, and for the troops. Hooray for the President!
There's so much more. So please snorkenpuffle from here over to there and read the whole thing.
