    Interesting. So did Bush flip flop, or did he have to squash a rebellion? I guess that's the big question.

    And then there's the matter of what they said about John Kerry when he dared to suggest that the 'War on Terra' might not actually be a war after all.
    And this is from The Weekly Standard, which as Media Matters notes, was one of only two media outlets to report this. None of theliberalmedia picked it up.

    I think it's psycholgically revealing that Bush keeps pronouncing it "the war on terra".
