See, if he ordered the first attack, he might know something about another attack


Mind-boggling statement of the day: a spokesmodel for the Israeli military attacked Hamas for calling on women to protect besieged Hamas fighters, “knowing the IDF would not shoot at women and children”.

Except of course they did. With machine guns. Killing two. Wounding 17.

Bush rally Iowa: “The interesting thing about campaigns, if somebody is going to raise your taxes, they don’t want you to know about it.”

He reminisced about his experiences in the high-stakes, wheels-within-wheels world of international intrigue: “One day the -- came in the Oval Office and said, Mr. President, we have captured Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. ... I told the CIA that I think it’s important for them, the professionals, to figure out what he knows. See, if he ordered the first attack, he might know something about another attack.” George Smiley, eat your heart out!

“Oh, I’ve heard them in Washington; they say Iraq is a distraction from the war on terror. Well, we just have a difference of opinion. I believe Iraq is central to the war on terror. Our troops believe Iraq is central to the war on terror. And so does Osama bin Laden. ... But they think differently in Washington, particularly the Democrats.” So it’s not just the Democrats, it’s “Washington” that’s all gooey-headed on The War Against Terror (TWAT). Also, he claims to be speaking on behalf of the troops, telling us what they “believe.” Stop that. Just fucking stop that.

And from earlier in the day, here he is campaigning for Sen. Jim Talent, or making fun of Talent’s glasses, or whatever the hell he’s doing.
