"Sound" Versus "Strong"



Uh, could you run that by me again, Robert?

So the fundamentals of the economy are sound but not strong. Or strong but not sound. But not sound and strong. And not not sound and not strong.

Or something.

At first, watching margarine-tongued spin boy Robert Gibbs was hilarious. Now, it's almost painful. When you have to rely on parsing the definitions of "sound" versus "strong" to keep your administration from looking hypocritical, well, words fail me. Which is good, because Robert Gibbs would probably parse their definitions, too.

Get this man his own Internet forum debate thread. Seriously.

Now this, however, is how it's done. Pay attention, Robert...
