    Bush's gesture politics suggest a man seriously worried about his career The 1980s movie The Ploughman's Lunch took its title from an early example of what we have now come to know as spin.

Isn't there the Iraqi leadership the US had appointed? .. Or is Iraq just US troops in a Thanksgiving...
