evolution in action

David Postman nails a recent shift in strategic language, comparing Dick Cheney, June 22 to Ken Mehlman, August 13. New new GOP talking points:
Look, the fact is that our mission in the war in Iraq is critical. We agree on that; we agree it's wrong to cut and run. But look, we're not coming in and saying "Stay the course." The choice in this election is not between "Stay the course" and "Cut and run," it's between "Win by adapting" and "Cut and run."
I always thought "stay the course" was old school, Dana Carvey material, to be followed with "thousand points of light."
