In case you missed it

Actual quote from President Bush's softball interview with the new and improved Katie Couric:

""You know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror."

Looks like his internal monologue failed again. Rove better tighten that choke collar before he starts spouting off about avenging the death threat against his pappy. Sir, it's the hardest part of your job because prior to you invading the country, they were pissed off about us, but after burning a few flags in public rallies, they all went home, knelt on the rugs and left us all the hell alone. Now because revolution is a dirty business (not to mention imperialism) we're stuck with these Al-Qaida fools being in Iraq. As an American, it almost makes you long for Saddam. At least he kept those freaks on a leash.

And also, in case you missed the front page of many a paper today:

Headline: Senate Intelligence Committee Findings Released Friday Say Saddam Hussein Didn't Support Al-Qaida Or Bin Laden.

The findings in the report that every American should know (quotations from the Hartford Courant, a paper I don't count on for news, and certainly not a paper that is often proofread, prior to printing, but nonetheless came in handy for this rant):

1) "On weapons of mass destruction: Iraq was not rebuilding its nuclear weapons program, did not have biological or chemical weapons and was not developing a missile to deliver biological agents" (as if there was any doubt that Saddam had the brain power to pull this part off).

2) "On links to terrorism: Saddam Hussein distrusted Al-Qaida and viewed Islamic extremists as a threat to his government" (cause you know, of any of the dictators out there, clearly Saddam was the least paranoid).

"There is no credible information that Iraq was involved in, or knew in advance of, the Sept. 11 attacks" (no matter what approximately 40% of the American population believes--in case you were wondering, these Americans in the 40% are the people you often see on Leno during the Jay-walking segment).

"There is no credible information that Iraq intended to use Al-Qaida or any other terrorist group to strike the United States before or during the Iraq war" (he had enough problems on his own trying to attack us, he certainly wasn't going to let in furriners (for those of you not originally from the South "foreigners") without letting those wackos in his country).

3) "On reports from Iraqi National Congress: False information from sources affiliated with the congress was used to support key intelligence agency assessments on Iraq" (White House and Pentagon officials literally ignored intelligence officials because the information didn't mesh with the agenda).

You know, it's always nice to be validated, but when it's getting validated and bent-over at the same time, it really leaves a bitter taste of disgust in your mouth.

Did you see The Daily Show? There was a bite from Bush that said something like, "Nobody ever said there was a connection between Iraq and 9/11."

Is it 2008 yet??

You are absolutely right on. Can someone tell me why the hell there isn't a movement to impeach Bush? Hell, Clinton only lied about his sex life and he was impeached. Bush lied to get the country involved in a war against the wrong guy and the wrong country for the wrong reasons. Our children are being killed for NOTHING people! Isn't there anyone out there paying attention? Screw waiting for 2008, I say we throw the as*hole out NOW before the idiot does any more damage to the reputation of the US or sacrifices more of our children for his ego and vanity.

Amen, anon, amen.

We should cross stitch these quotes on pillows and throw them at people. Isn't there a woman doing that? Cross stitching stupid Bush quotes onto pillows?

Ugh...I couldn't bring myself to listen to his half baked rantings. Why people continue to support this C student I'll never know.
I heard one of the RNC pundits on with Steven Colbert, he stated that the Dem's would take the house and senate in the mid-terms but that would make it easier to install a Repubtard in the White house in 08'. I beg to differ.
