Revisionist history

The amendment of the former headline on the White House website from Bush "announces combat operations in Iraq have ended" during his speech atop the aircraft carrier to the present headline that he "announces major combat operations have ended" is indeed chickenshit. From a president who doesn't comprehend the concept of "revisionist history" when attacking those who are calling him on his lies about the prewar intelligence, he sure knows how to engage in it when it suits him. It's amusing to see his minions in action, dutifully changing the headline three months after the fact to fit the later-developing data of the state of combat operations. Chickenshit, yes. Amusing, too. And hypocritical. You betcha. Stupid to get caught at it, see here, yeah, that too.
