Spinsanity has been taking a hard look at the snit between Bush and Daschle regarding the “not interested” quote. This is not a trivial issue. I’m not talking about whether the Washington Times reported Daschle’s motive honestly or if the Bush remark was objectively outrageous. What’s at stake here are several important definitions: security, patriotism, and Iraq. And how we define these–what they mean politically–may have a profound impact on the mid-term elections and our long-term security (not to mention the lives of American soldiers and Iraqi citizens).

I offer commentary on the rhetoric of the American conversation, especially as it unfolds in documentary film, the news media, and politics. Check out my feeds on Twitter and Instagram. Also be sure to see my work at Carbon Trace Productions, a non-profit documentary film studio in Springfield, Missouri. I am a Professor of Media & Journalism at Missouri State University. I teach classes in mobile journalism and documentary filmmaking.
