Dumbass

According to Frances Fragos Townsend, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Terrorism, the fact that Bin Laden remains at large is not a failure of Bush's White House, but is rather a "succes that hasn't occured yet."

What failure isn't a success under this bold new definition? I haven't failed to earn a PhD--it's a success that hasn't occured yet! I haven't failed to achieve nirvana, nor have I failed to run a 4-minute-mile. This Administration hasn't failed to prevent sectarian chaos and bloodshed in Iraq--it's a success waiting to happen someday, after all. American forces haven't failed to find WMD or to be pelted by candy and roses instead of IEDs...

sounds a lot like Lisa Simpson's anti Tiger rock, doesn't it?

one question: is that a *catastrophic* success that hasn't occurred yet??
