We join the press conference already in progress.
"Mr. President, do you still say that 'stay the course' is your philosophy for the Iraqi conflict?"
"IIII neeeverrrr said 'staaaay the coooourssssssse." [wave]
"Mr. President, you and nearly every member of your staff has been repeating that phrase at any and all opportunities. And what's with the little hand wave?"
"Youuu will forgeeet that youuuu eveerrr heard us saaaaay that."[wave,wave]
"Um, ok, I'll wave back if that makes you happy, sir. But we have dozens of video clips of you and your staff saying 'stay the course'.
"Dammit, Rove. It's not working. Get Snow in here! Um...ahem...Yooooou will goooo baaack tooooo yoouuuur stuuuuuudio and eraaaaase those videooooos." [wave,wave,wave,wave]
"Mr. President, I'm sure this is all quite amusing to you, but the press has a responsibility to the public to show the truth. I will not erase anything. And I respectfully request that you stop waving at us. Ah, Mr. Snow. Perhaps you can shed some light on things for us?"
"Certainly. We feel that the phrase "stay the course" doesn't capture the dynamism of the tactics America and its allies are employing."
"Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! He's a Sith! Run for your lives!!!!! NO MORE QUESTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
