"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Death of American Soldiers on the Rise

Here is an interesting angle. Ignore the fact that the U.S. monthly death count has been going down recently as much as msm'ly possible. Then, keep daily track and your fingers crossed. Then, have a headline ready for the inevitable.

Something really eye-catching and original like "Deaths of U.S. Soldiers Climb Again in Iraq"

To be fair, you will have to say things like, "when 31 service members died last month, it was the second lowest monthly death toll of the war for the Americans, and the fifth month in a row of declining fatalities, according to statistics from the Iraq Coalition Casualty Count, an independent organization." But hey, what the heck, you got your headline and that's all that really matters.
