George Bush had just landed in a fighter plane on the deck of the aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln, which displayed a huge banner that read "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED". (That was in May of 2003 - for those of who have forgotten this incident.) Karl Rove, the President's chief spin-doctor, thought that, after the obligatory photo-op, Bush should give a short press conference, still clad in his flight gear. So, surrounded by a group of hand-picked journalists, Bush answered their questions. When asked by one of these "embedded" journalists what his plans were for Iraq Bush replied: "Well, now that we've won the war we're gonna divide up Iraq into three parts: premium, premium extra and diesel."
