Stealing From Either Crooks and Liars or Daily Kos

Where I read that Richard Perle said:

Key Quote: “And a year from now, I’ll be very surprised if there is not some grand square in Baghdad that is named after President Bush.” [9/22/03]

Eh, if one were talking Imperial Pride, how about your neighborhood vomitorium?

But then I read in Wikipedia that:

A popular misconception is that the Romans made use of a room called a vomitorium for the express purpose of vomiting between meals to make room for more food. Only a very small minority of the highest classes indulged in the practice of deliberately vomiting. A vomitorium is actually an entirely unrelated architectural feature – a passage situated below or behind a tier of seats in an amphitheatre, through which the crowds could "spew out" at the end of a show.

But we'll need something like that for our exit strategy, right, which is likely to be more of a spew than a triumphal exit.
