Jim! You cannot break the laws of physics!

First, Atrios spots the mystery.

Bush made a 20-minute speech to a crowd of about 500 party faithful in the main ballroom of the Hanover Marriott at a $2,000-a-plate evening fund-raiser.

Not breaking any ground, Bush highlighted the accomplishments of his administration, saying he had eliminated the terror threat from Afghanistan and weapons of mass destruction from Iraq and ensured that Medicare will remain solvent.

How can you eliminate non-existent WMDs, Atrios asks? Fortunately, as David explains, it's all a simple matter of physics, really.

In fact, prior to the invasion, the weapons both existed and didn't exist simultaneously, not unlike Schrodinger's Cat. The invasion and subsequent search brought in observers and collapsed the wave function to one of non-existence. Thus the President was speaking nothing but the truth.

We really don't give our President enough credit, do we?

No, no, no. He isn't saying he's eliminated the WMD's from Iraq. He's saying he's eliminated the *threat* of WMD's from Iraq. Because we proved they weren't there. By going. And not finding them. At taxpayer expense. Urk.

This is why I don't provide spin for politicians.

I never did like stories that involved (possibly) killing cats!
