But he and Hall don't care how hypocritical they look or how contradictory their positions are. Like Bush they reside in an unaccountable place in their own minds where not planning a war means it was wise, where not giving the troops armor is the troops problem, where failure is success and the hard work of active diplomacy is referred to as a refuge for cowards. Welcome to the Ministry of Peace and the rest of George Orwell's prediction of the future in 1984. Already, Rovian thought-bots of the administration, like Douglas Feith are drenching the airwaves with Newspeak lies aimed at making our whole society recall their failvictories. I say let's all join the revolution and remember what these unhonorable men actually did do, especially on election day this November. And let's make damn sure the Democratic Party doesn't forget these crimes once they have control of the reigns of power.
"The keyword here is blackwhite. Like so many Newspeak words, this word has two mutually contradictory meanings. Applied to an opponent, it means the habit of impudently claiming that white is white, in contradiction of the plain facts. Applied to a Party member, it means a loyal willingness to say that black is white when Party discipline demands this. But it means also the ability to believe that black is white, and more, to know that black is white, and to forget that one has ever believed the contrary. This demands a continuous alteration of the past, made possible by the system of thought which really embraces all the rest, and which is known in Newspeak as doublethink. Doublethink is basically the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them."
