We Have Cooties Too

Steve Benen at TPM:

The Guardian's Ewen MacAskill had a good piece the other day about the president's VFW speech, and included an anecdote in passing that caught my eye.

The speech was aimed primarily at what White House officials privately describe as the "defeatocrats", the Democratic Congressmen trying to push Mr Bush into an early withdrawal.

In private, presidential aides walk around the White House referring to "defeatocrats"? Seriously? West Wing conversations now resemble Free Republic threads?

I want to believe it's edgy, ironic banter like on the old TV show but no doubt it's more like dollar Bud night at the Hitchin Post.

Remember Bush saying "the Democrat Party"?
