Bush Doing “Plastic Surgery” on Iraq According to Condi

While testifying before Congress, Sec. of State Condoleeza Rice showed why the rest of the world considers her irrelevant. The Doctor argued over word choices with a leading Republican critic and Vietnam veteran, Senator Chuck Hagel.

"Putting in 22,000 more troops is not an escalation?" Hagel asked.

Rice responded: "I think, senator, escalation is not just a matter of how many numbers you put in."

"Would you call it a decrease?" Hagel asked.

"I would call it, senator, an augmentation that allows the Iraqis to deal with this very serious problem that they have in Baghdad," she said.

Enhancement, augmentation, engorgement, anything but “escalation”! I bet augmentation is a very popular word amongst middle aged to elderly men serving in Congress, also known as a “junior high” according to one Representative. Condi likely scored big points with “a” word. But the pair continued to trade barbs.

When Rice disputed Hagel's contention that Iraq was in the throes of civil war, Hagel shot back: "To sit there and say that, that's just not true."

Yes doctor the patient’s cells are attacking one another, but it’s not cancer, just a slow growing tumor with a positive biopsy.

Rice told senators there was a "national imperative not to fail."

As long as the patient doesn’t die during the augmentation procedure, the “surge”-ry will have been a success…
