"... Remember, we discovered mass graves with hundreds of thousands of men and women, and children, clutching their little toys, as a result of this person's brutality."But in fact, that hadn't happened. Not in November 2003 when this interview was taped, and not now. I'm not claiming that Saddam wasn't a bad guy who killed a lot of people. He was. He did. The point here is that our chief executive doesn't have a clue as to what is really happening in the great big world outside the beltway. This recent article shows that even Tony Blair can eventually figure it out:
"...Downing Street has admitted to The Observer that repeated claims by Tony Blair that '400,000 bodies had been found in Iraqi mass graves' is untrue, and only about 5,000 corpses have so far been uncovered."But not George Bush. Don't hold your breath waiting for an admission of error; George doesn't make mistakes, remember? If this was an isolated occurrence that would be one thing, but this goes on all the time. Remember Cheney insisting on Iraq/Al Qaeda ties? Or George claiming that the weapons labs had been found?

"Under Illinois election law, the people can directly elect a person to office without a party nomination by using the write-in vote," said Hug..."Interestingly, the outfit that has been doing the polling which "so strongly indicates " that Ditka is the people's choice, 21st Century Campaigns LLC, is run by a perennial failed candidate for office, Steve Denari.
Approximately 10 minutes later, that same flight attendant came by with the drinks cart. She leaned over and quietly told my husband there were federal air marshals sitting all around us. She asked him not to tell anyone and explained that she could be in trouble for giving out that information.
“There’s a lot of money to pay for this that doesn’t have to be U.S. taxpayer money, and it starts with the assets of the Iraqi people…and on a rough recollection, the oil revenues of that country could bring between $50 and $100 billion over the course of the next two or three years…We’re dealing with a country that can really finance its own reconstruction, and relatively soon.” -Paul Wolfowitz
