    Nice. And, of course, we can all expect President Bush's apology real soon now.

    ...

    Shee-ah, right! This "anti-flip-flopper" and "man of conviction" will never admit to those mistakes. What a pile o' crap.

    Well, if the Grey Lady can apologize; one could expect that Bush and company could.

    Conviction versus Zealotry.

    If I'm not mistaken:

    Conviction is a commitment to an Ideal or a set of values.

    Zealotry is allowing your beliefs to override reason and define your course of action based on a doctrine rather than reasonable examination of the situation.

    Basically: A person who uses the word "Conviction" to explain never admitting error is a Zealot... Worse, a Zealot with very little self-awareness.

    WOW! I'm guessing that wasn't one of those little retractions on the back page of the section nobody reads but lines their bird cages with???
