237 and counting

A report released on March 16 by the House of Representatives Committee on Government Reform, Special Investigations Unit is described as
…a comprehensive examination of the statements made by the five [Bush] Administration officials most responsible for providing public information and shaping public opinion on Iraq…. It finds that the five officals made misleading statements about the threat posed by Iraq in 125 public appearances. The report and an accompanying database identify 237 specific misleading statements by the five officials.
Complete with charts, graphs, timelines, quotes, and categories of disinformation, the report, Iraq on the Record offers substantial proof of either the incompetence or the deviousness of our leadership. Or maybe both.
Meanwhile, In Cincinnati, Claire Mugavin wore a biohazard suit to a protest that drew several hundred people. She pretended to look for weapons of mass destruction beneath benches and garbage cans. “We figure they’re not in Iraq,” said the 24-year-old Cincinnati resident. “So we figured we’d come look for them in Fountain Square.”
I like nonblogger myrln’s response to that:
You gotta love it. What we need is a National Mockery Movement that daily mocks Dumbya and his gang…a relentless, ruthless campaign for the next 8 months. Make them into a national joke, and we’d get rid of them. Laughter may indeed be not only the best medicine but maybe the best weapon, too.
The Ben of Ben and Jerry’s is already full speed on that one. To keep up with the lies being shoveled at us about even more than Iraq, keep checking here.
