It's no longer "Stay the Course."

Because changing your slogan changes the outcome of the war.

But the White House is cutting and running from "stay the course." A phrase meant to connote steely resolve instead has become a symbol for being out of touch and rigid in the face of a war that seems to grow worse by the week, Republican strategists say. Democrats have now turned "stay the course" into an attack line in campaign commercials, and the Bush team is busy explaining that "stay the course" does not actually mean stay the course.

Frankly, I didn't think "adapt to win" had a snowball's chance, either.

more Tommy Flanaganisms here.
