That damn liberal media!

Didn't they get their indoctrination briefing before the press conference?

They should have asked:

Mr. President, numerous countries and individuals around the world disagree with your stance on Iraq. Considering the fact that we might need assistance in a full-scale war, why won't the administration give the weapons inspectors just one site where they can actually find something? If our intelligence is as infallable as you suggest it is, this should be easy and any weapons movements made after the fact would be outweighed by the increased support from other countries, right?


Mr. President, you have said that you will do what is necessary to protect Americans, no matter what the rest of the world does. Right now, North Korea is saying that they will deal only with the U.S. While you continue to state that this is a regional issue, shouldn't your administration agree to speak with Kim Jong Il? You have said before that North Korea is a threat to the U.S. Why would you expect China or Japan to do "what is necessary to protect Americans" when they only want to speak with you?

Follow-up: Sir, some in Japan have suggested that they need to develop nuclear weapons to defend against North Korea. Do you feel that your unwillingness to speak with North Korea ought to be considered, in part, to blame for the possible proliferation of nuclear weapons in the region?


Sir, many members of your administration served in your father's and were party to several lies about Saddam Hussein at that time, including one about how his soldiers had dumped premature babies out of incubators. You, yourself, have misled the people repeatedly on issues of domestic policy and Colin Powell's address to the U.N. has been proven to be filled with falsehoods. Considering this track record of deception, why should anyone believe that you have the evidence to which you refer?

Come on, people, if you're not going to show up at the meetings, we're going to take away your Liberal Media Decoder Rings.

Also: Mighty Joe Conason has another question for Bush. He want's to know why Bush says that Iraq's a sponsor of "terruh" when the State Department says otherwise.

Why we (don't) write

As you'll notice, I haven't written in a couple of days. I apologize to my faithful reader. I'm sorry, Mom. However, I just wonder whether it's worth it at all anymore. Honestly, people, we are currently living in a country where people are recommending pre-emptive nuclear strikes on North Korea, where it is now argued that we may have to go to war with Iraq just because it would make us look bad if we didn't go ahead and kill a bunch of their people and guys who probably vote Democrat are saying that we should be allowed to torture people for information.

Good God.

Doesn't the whole idea of who we are as a nation have to change now? I don't mean once these things are done, either, but just because there are people in power who aren't disgusted by these arguments?

All we'll accept is total disarmament...

Oh, and regime change.

And get me a turkey pot pie, bitch!
