Counting the Way Forward

Back when the Bush administration tried to ditch "Stay the Course" as a mantra -- White House Spokesman Tony Snow incorrectly claimed President Bush had hardly ever used the phrase.

No problem with "the way forward." That's the new buzz phrase for Iraq. Sarah Wheaton at the New York Times has been keeping count. She reports Mr Snow has used the term 50 times since December 5. She only counts 19 mentions of the phrase before the fifth. (NYT)
