God in the Machine

Literally "God in the machine", Deus Ex Machina originally referred to Greek plays, where the "gods" would be lowered onto the stage with ropes in order to provide a quick resolution to the story. Today, Deus Ex Machina refers to any improbably and/or overly convenient character or mechanism that comes out of nowhere and saves the character(s).

Oh, THAT media bias

Headline: Bush, Kerry Even Despite Iraq Woes.

Not Bush, Kerry even. When Republicans do well, it has to be IN SPITE of something, doesn't it. I think the point of the headline is how dumb we civilians are.. imagine it: IN SPITE of Iraq woes, we're still dumb enough to vote for Bush.

Why didn't the headline read Kerry not a good enough candidate to beat Bush in his worst hour in Iraq?

No, there's no liberal bias in the media.
