Someone named "Hart Seely" over at MSN has sifted through the international war of rhetoric and made a brilliant discovery: the poetry of Donald Rumsfeld. Here are a couple of tasty samples...

The Unknown
As we know,
There are known knowns.
There are things we know we know.
We also know
There are known unknowns.
That is to say
We know there are some things
We do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns,
The ones we don't know
We don't know.

I think what you'll find,
I think what you'll find is,
Whatever it is we do substantively,
There will be near-perfect clarity
As to what it is.

And it will be known,
And it will be known to the Congress,
And it will be known to you,
Probably before we decide it,
But it will be known.

we take off our pants... so you don't have to.
