Who knew that the real reason we all re-elected Chimpy in 2004 was so that we could just be continually amused at the office pranks played by members of his administration! The report will be written in invisible ink.
This just in from Think Progress:
A senior military officer said there will be no written presentation to the president on security and stability in Iraq. "There is no report. It is an assessment provided by them by testimony," the officer said.
The only hard copy will be Gen. Petraeus’ opening statement to Congress, scheduled for Monday, along with any charts he will use in explaining the results of the troop surge in Baghdad over the past several months.
Well ok then. I prefer hand-waving and grimacing to reading any day. Geez if you write it down, people will just fact check you and complain about style and substance and other useless things like that. This is a media campaign! Not a progress report! Get with the program people.
I wonder if I can use this at my office? Boss, I decided that the status didn't need to be written down. I'll just tell you a really pleasant story and make up some pretty charts to file away somewheres. That's really all you want to hear on a Friday afternoon, anyway. Right? No news is good news!
Carry on, General!
