Bush on the Mission Accomplished Banner

Adam at Words Mean Things weighs in on Bush’s it-would-be-funny-if-it-weren’t-sad claim that he had nothing to do with the “Mission Accomplished” banner that the sailors on the Abraham Lincoln chose to run over the president’s head, positioned just so to fill the frame along with the sober presidential brow and the determined presidential jaw and the twinkly yet steely presidential eyes: Press conference update.

Also via Adam, some additional links on the subject: From Joe Conason, The entitled and the enlisted (one-day pass required). And from Buzzflash reader Rosamond: Mission accomplished: The Lie.
