It doesn't take a genius to...

In an otherwise excellent article criticizing the Bush Administration's fuzzy language, the author comes out with this:

"Bush can insist all day long that America isn't at war with Islam. But that misses the point. In varying degrees, the Islamic world is at war with the U.S., its interests and purposes."

Is this meant to be a counterexample? "Here, let me demonstrate how it's done. Unlike Bush, I'll use language that's precise, concrete, and specific. Instead of saying we're 'at war with terrorism,' we should be saying we're at war with the 'Islamic world.'"

Ideologues are always good for a few belly laughs.

Hey, I'm just happy when our president says you're "either with us or with the terrorists" he means you're either for peaceful, democratic, free societies, China and Saudi Arabia for example, or you're for dictatorial, oppressive regimes.

Oh wait...

Ha!

Can't be any more succinct than that...
