It’s going to take more than 24 days

The news media have been making fools of themselves in recent days by claiming the the war in Afghanistan has somehow “bogged down” or “reached a stalemate” because we’ve been bombing for three whole weeks and we still haven’t won. (Some observers have pointed out that news conferences are beginning to sound like the Saturday Night Live “Gulf War Briefing” skit.) Finally, in today’s prepared statement, Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld addressed the question head-on and, in essence, told the press that they are behaving like idiots. Woohoo! After their disgracefully overblown coverage of the anthrax scare, it’s very satisfying to see them reprimanded so effectively.
