No, Howard, throw the ball, not the hat
Some days I think about wearing a hat. Roger Simon, sadly, has already cornered the blogger-with-a-hat market, but the nice thing about hats is that when a person finally runs across the bit of mind numbing stupidity that makes his head explode it is easy to collect all the shattered pieces, put them back together again, and get back to work.
Radio Host Neal Boortz has a quick take on how Iraq fits into the war on terror.
HOWARD DEAN'S RAPID FIRE LIES
During the final moments of my show preparation this morning I happened to catch Howard Dean on CNN promoting the candidacy of John Kerry. Dean went into this rant about George Bush that was, to say the least, incredible. Incredible because I haven't heard a politician cram so many lies into so little time in quite a while.
Dean said the president was not telling the truth when he said:
"There was a connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda, which was not true."
In fact, it was true. Those connections have now been proven.
"That Saddam Hussein had something to do with terrorism, which was not true."
Come on, Howard. Saddam was making a big deal of writing checks to the families of suicide bombers. He was harboring terrorists in Baghdad. Ever heard of Abu Nidal?
"When he said in the State of the Union that Iraq was purchasing uranium from Africa, which was not true."
George Bush never made that statement. Dean is lying, and he knows he's lying. Why didn't the CNN interviewer call him on this?
"When the Vice President said that in Iraq they are accumulating nuclear weapons, which was not true."
I can find no instance where Cheney said that Iraq was accumulating nuclear weapons, only that Saddam was attempting to do so.
What a shame it is that Dean imploded. What fun he would be as a candidate!
