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).
