Actually, “Squirmish” seems to fit Obama’s war

Sarah Palin’s mispronunciation of “skirmish” seems to have provided us with the perfect word for Obama’s handing of the Libya situation…. a squeamish way of skirmishing.  He dithered for a good, long while … even after the Arab League called for intervention.  Then he backed into a coalition that already existed through the work of  France, then tried to take credit for building it.  Then, he casually went to Congress ten days after the fact.

Somewhere in the middle of all that, the administration managed to coin their most amusing euphemism to date.  It ain’t “war”;  it’s “kinetic military action“.

Yup, it’s a squeamish skirmish that being, um,  kinetically acted by the Obama Administration…
