Deconstructing Dubya

Normally, I complain about the ubiquitous misuse of the term "deconstruction." I find that, more often than not, when people say "deconstruction" they actually mean "destruction," but they also want to show that they went to college. (See the "deconstructed" fashions hyped on Project Runway, for example, which are just ensembles of shredded or otherwise damaged fabric.)

However, I have run across an excellent peice which is, pleasantly, both a confirmation of and an exception to this annoyance of mine. Bob Shrum has written an article called "Deconstructing Bush's Speech on the Deconstruction of Iraq" which can be found here.

Read it. It's brilliant.
