Unintended honesty watch

From Dan Froomkin's column today talking about the meeting between Bush and al-Maliki he quotes that infamous SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL: "...And I also wouldn't agree with your characterization of tinkering. These are the, as I said, sort of the nuts and bolts of getting the tools in place to deal with the security situation. There was, as I mentioned, quite a fulsome conversation about the situation in Baghdad..." [Emphasis mine-CK]

From ful·some adj.
1. Offensively flattering or insincere. See synonyms at unctuous.

I had a vision of Bush and al-Maliki tossing spin and platitudes at each other and thought, yeah, that sounds about right.
