A nice collection of Bushisms.
I think my husband is prescient. When the CBS-false-memo flap first broke, Brad commented, "I wonder if the Republicans set up Dan Rather. It would be a brilliant way to deflect attention from Bush's non-service record...Do an expose on him that proves to be faked." And, now, this just in....
According to the New York Post, "The hot rumor in New York political circles has Roger Stone, the longtime GOP activist, as the source for Dan Rather's dubious Texas Air National Guard `memos.' The irony would be delicious, since Rather became famous confronting President Nixon, in whose service a very young Stone became associated with political 'dirty tricks'."
And, then, from the Democratic National Committee: "In response to false Republican accusations regarding the CBS documents, Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe issued this statement: In today's New York Post, Roger Stone, who became associated with political 'dirty tricks' while working for Nixon, refused to deny that he was the source the CBS documents. Will Ed Gillespie or the White House admit today what they know about Mr. Stone's relationship with these forged documents? Will they unequivocally rule out Mr. Stone's involvement? Or for that matter, others with a known history of dirty tricks, such as Karl Rove or Ralph Reed?" In a USA Today article entitled "Parties lob accusations over suspect papers," however, Stone denies involvement, saying "I have nothing whatsoever to do with this." Interesting. Now if Brad could only predict the ponies...
Gordon P. writes, The Muskegon County Michigan school districts will soon be holding a "terrorist attack drill" in which a fictitious terrorist organization is supposed to have planted a bomb on a public school bus. The fictitious terrorist organization? "Wackos Against Schools and Education, who believe everyone should be homeschooled." I kid you not. I could _never_ have possibly made up a claim _this_ bizarrely baseless and irrational, no matter how hard I tried!!! (Gee, do you think maybe the public school-system is starting to feel a teensy bit _threatened_ by the Hoomschooling Movement? :-/)
Best to all,
