vocabulary lesson

troop surge (n): the act of sending more troops into a situation we never should have been in in the first place; a deliberate flaunting of the will of the people (ie, democracy) in order to avoid admitting a mistake and in a desperate attempt to vindicate one's own position; the #1 issue in the 2008 election

Hey Condie says it's not a troop surge, it's an "augmentation". I thought augmentation meant a boob job.

Yah, I thought augmentation meant boob jobs too.

that's a good metaphor--a completely cosmetic change more likely to do harm than good. it's like saying--breast cancer? get a boob job! naked apes baffle me.
