When 21,000 is really 35,000

Heard on C-Span this morning that the actual number of additional bodies that will be sent to Iraq is between 35,000 and 48,000. Seems support troops and all the private contractors are not counted in the Surge. Muckraker has a lively discussion on this.

    The number of troops grows exponentially with the size of Bush's nose. I just wanted to use that word exponentially since I had to learn it, but it does sound good, right?

    Clearly he counts troops like he counts budget money.
