Okay, That Much Is Settled: They Are That Stupid, And They're Liars


Neocons by Nigel Parry for Vanity Fair:
Five Gummos in search of a brother with talent.

David Rose's
piece in the January Vanity Fair is well worth the read, and provides us with much to talk about, the first on that list being, "If the Democrats do not haul these guys and every other Republican thug associated with the Bush Crime family in front of committees, under oath, and squeeze them until their eyeballs bleed there is no hope left for this country."

For now I'll just leave you with this. David Frum:

"I always believed as a speechwriter that if you could persuade the president to commit himself to certain words, he would feel himself committed to the ideas that underlay those words. And the big shock to me has been that, although the president said the words, he just did not absorb the ideas. And that is the root of, maybe, everything."

I've been up since the wee hours with a fledgling cold, but damn if that didn't just make my day.

Mr. Frum certainly has extraordinary faith in the power of his instrument, doesn't he? His speechwriting instrument, I mean.
