I hear Beachboys

Governor George Bush's auxiliary wife has returned from her junket to Iran, and it seems things didn't go well. It appears the Iranian government rebuffed her noble diplomatic overtures and instead apparently lectured her about American arrogance.

Ms. Rice was quoted as saying "we expected to hear an answer from the Iranians but, as has been the case so many times with the Iranians, what came through was not serious. It's time for the Iranians to give a serious answer. They can't go and stall and make small talk about culture, they have to make a decision. People are tired of the Iranians and their stalling tactics. We will see what Iran does in two weeks, but I think the diplomatic process now has a new kind of energy to it. If they do not decide to suspend then we will be in a situation where we have to return to the Security Council. From time to time, it is important to invigorate the diplomacy. I think that the fact that we went may have been a bit surprising to the Iranians, and they didn't react in a way that gave anyone any confidence. I think we've done enough to demonstrate that the United States is serious and to assure our partners that we're serious."

The deja vu in here is so strong, it's almost louder than reality...

Wait...isn't trying to go through the process of diplomacy with Iranians something Bush himself recently dismissed as "appeasement"?

You know what they say: "a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of George Bush's little mind."
