CHECKING IN

President Bush, as you may have noticed, has been speechifying lately on Iraq, trying out a few new lines of rhetorical attack, and dragging out a whole host of old ones for good measure. (The old ones don't seem to pack the same punch when your approval rating is in the mid 30's.)

Slate's Fred Kaplan goes over Bush's new round of carefully-worded assertions and finds them, well, all stem and no cell.

(And if you have any interest in not developing a stye, you'd be well advised to steer clear of Chalab-o-phile Christopher Hitchens' useless, lazy drivel on a related matter.)
