Meet the New War...

...same as the old war.

This video is all over the place, but Hillary Clinton is simultaneously saying that the surge is working, but that it's "too late" - we're fighting "the last war" and "we have to be preparing to fight the new war".

Just so everybody has that straight, the war we're in right now, currently, in the present, is "the last war". And no matter how well we do, it's too late. Not sure what the new war is. Is Hillary getting ready to attack Iran? Surely not.

Reminds me of the scene in Spaceballs where they're watching themselves on TV. ~MJA

Dark Helmet: What the hell am I looking at? When does this happen in the movie?
Colonel Sandurz: Now. You're looking at now sir. Everything that happens now, is happening now.
Dark Helmet: What happened to then?
Colonel Sandurz: We passed then.
Dark Helmet: When?
Colonel Sandurz: Just now. We're at now, now.
Dark Helmet: Go back to then!
Colonel Sandurz: When?
Dark Helmet: Now.
Colonel Sandurz: Now?
Dark Helmet: Now!
Colonel Sandurz: I can't.
Dark Helmet: Why?
Colonel Sandurz: We missed it.
Dark Helmet: When?
Colonel Sandurz: Just now.
Dark Helmet: When will then be now?
Colonel Sandurz: Soon.
Dark Helmet: How soon?
Video Operator: Sir!
[Dark Helmet has becomed far too confused and everyone now ignores him even though he's center screen]
Dark Helmet: What?
Video Operator: We've identified their location.
Dark Helmet: Where?

That's pretty close to the cadence I was looking for. My models were Spaceballs and the Python "ex parrot" skit.
