Matt Bivens over at The Daily Outrage has a nice bit on President Smirkyface's pathetic performance on Meet The Press on Sunday morning -- he focuses on W.'s seeming nonchalance about the future of democracy in Iraq. If you didn't catch the show, or read the reeking press coverage, you can read the transcript for yourself and laugh/cry with disbelief. Here's my personal favorite whopper:
"The thing about the Vietnam War that troubles me as I look back was it was a political war. We had politicians making military decisions, and it is lessons that any president must learn, and that is to the set the goal and the objective and allow the military to come up with the plans to achieve that objective. And those are essential lessons to be learned from the Vietnam War."
:-o Can't...breathe...too much...irony...This one quote alone is enough to get me behind Kerry -- who will hopefully administer a Presidential ass-whomping on behalf of all veterans at the first debate.
And if you need just a little more disbelief, check out David Brooks' attempt to put words in W.'s mouth after the fact. Hee.
Then, for a refreshing chaser, read the Center for American Progress' point-for-point rebuttal of W.'s Sunday sermon...aaahhhh, relief.
