He's still at large...

'cause we haven't caught him. Ooh. Please explain that to us again.

Why is he at large? 'Cause we haven't got him, yet, Jim. That's why. And he's hiding. And we're looking. And we will continue to look until we bring him to justice. We've brought a lot of his buddies to justice, but not him. That's why he's still at large." -- President Bush, at a press conference today, responding to a question about why Osama bin Laden has not yet been captured.
Does anyone else feel like we're going in circles? Is that even an answer? Not in any sort of conversation I've ever had.

It's meaningless doublespeak.

"Why is the house on fire?"

"Well, the house is fire 'cause it's still burning, you see. You've got to understand that fire is hot, and the house is burning. And we know that the house is burning. So the house is on fire."
