The White House has decided to further doctor its message, with a strategy to draw links between the War on Terror with the 14th Century Spanish Inquisition, according to a leaked White House memo.

“But no one’s really heard of the Spanish Inquisition,” White House political advisor Karl Rove comments at one point. “We’re running out of analogies, frankly,” White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten comments at another point during the meeting. “But it’s okay. The parallels are many. Plus we can say that the opposing viewpoint is to appease heathen non-believers, which sounds sort of bad to people, even if they never heard the word ‘Spanish Inquisition’ per se.” Bush later clarifies, asking “Who were the ‘good guys’ in that one Karl?”

A strategy for linking terrorist leaders with the Evil Empire and Darth Vader at one point in the meeting is dismissed as “too risky.”
