goodies from the post
I wish I had time to write more about these two tidbits from the WaPo, but in a way they speak for themselves:
Ari Flescher, responding to a recent item suggesting that Bush might be, um, embellishing a few facts: "President Bush's statements are facts supported by the record." He also says that "Each point in The Post's story is refuted by the facts," but only attempts to refute two of them, and L4m3ly, at that. Example: Those unmanned Iraqi aircraft Bush implied could strike the US, but can't? The Prez is worried that they could be "launched from a ship or a truck or by their being smuggled into the United States." As if simply using those methods to smuggle in a nuclear weapon wouldn't be a whole lot simpler, and as always assuming that Saddam is willing to be incinerated in the inevitable retaliation, as assertion for which there's simply no supporting evidence.
And then there's this: "Bush Enlists Government in GOP Campaign"
Most of the leftish blogs I read haven't had much to say, except to point out the obvious: Imagine what the Right would say were this Clinton or Gore and a Democratic administration. 'Nuff said.
