• Here’s today’s submissions for replacement slogans for the infamous “Mission Accomplished” banner.

— “We Have A Lot of Heavy Lifting To Do” and “Many, Many Challenges” submitted by Gen. David Patraeus

— “Disappointed By the Progress” submitted by Defense Secretary Robert Gates

— “A Big Disappointment” submitted by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell
