    Rower_CPU posted the same link yesterday, Sayhey, but this cringing piece of Rumsveldese is worthy of repetition! :D

    Speaking of liars, this morning on NPR I heard Richard Perle excoriate the Spanish Prime Minister-elect at length for saying that the Iraqi people were better off with Saddam in power. Not that the Spanish Prime Minister-elect had actually said such a thing. Where does this all end? On November 2, I hope.

    I was initially very excited about the Bush administration. But, as much as I hate to admit it, I am 90% sure I will note for for him again. This is just another reason... I am sick of the lies already.

    If you want a Government knee deep in lies, you should try the UK. But saying that the footage was good.

    i think what some forget is that Rumsfiled is suppose to be Super-Christian. He should be above lying. Plus the lie is about a war! This goes to the heart of what this country and Iraq have been going through for the last year plus!

    I hope so too. The movie's 51 seconds long, just long enough to add a Moveon.org tag to it.

    However, two factors that would work against it: first of all, it'd be much more expensive to run a :60 commercial than a :30, and second, I don't know that CBS would give Moveon.org the rights to use a piece of one of their programs. (Not implying any bias, just that networks don't want to become embroiled in "taking sides".)

    I think this is why you see the "e-mail this to a friend" link. If making a TV commercial out of this is not feasible, this is the next best way to pass the word.

    The other 10% is in denial. :D I live in Texas though, so he will get our electoral votes regardless.

    I don't know about you guys but if someone wrote down every public word I spoke then asked me a few weeks even days after what exactly I said I would have no idea of the exact wording I used. It would suck to be anyone in the public eye all the time.

    Apparently upset at being made a fool, Donald Rumsfeld has decided to be better prepared to face tough interviewers. Below, Rumsfeld prepares to be interviewed by Paula Zahn.
