It’s All in the Marketing

See, I think the Bush regime’s taking the wrong tack.

This whole “Really, everything is fine... we’re on the course to victory... pay no attention to the man behind the curtain” song-and-dance isn’t cutting it. Especially since Iraq is now unequivocally embroiled in civil war — and the imperialist spin machine hasn’t been able to convince anyone otherwise.

But yesterday marked the three-year mark since the invasion, and I think it’s time to take a page from the tech-industry handbook:

“I’m terribly sorry, but your extended warranty has run out. There’s nothing more we can do for you.”

Oh, sure, some nitpickers may point out that the civil war actually started before the warranty ran out, but we all know that delaying a repair until the warranty’s expired is a time-honored tech support tradition.
