There was a time when President Bush would compare someone who wanted to negotiate with Iran to a big, Hitler-appeasing pussy. But that was two whole months ago. Things are different now, presumably, since the Bush administration is quickly inching towards diplomatic relations with Iran and is, uh, meeting directly with them tomorrow. Without meddlesome preconditions!

The president is sending a top State Department diplomat to a meeting where EU and Iranian negotiators will discuss whether or not Iran is interested in accepting a couple bribes (like this and this) to stop enriching uranium.
