I read the news today...
JANESVILLE, Wis. - Democrat John Kerry wrongly questioned the credibility of the interim Iraqi leader, and "you can't lead this country" while undercutting an ally, President Bush said Friday.
… oh boy.

That is the definition of hypocrisy... this guy practically invented undercutting our allies. But that's not all! This entire week was filled with one head-scratching sound bite after another. It was a did-he-really-just-say-that? week. A few examples.
Bush, on Thursday: "I saw a poll that said the 'right track-wrong track' in Iraq was better than here in America."
So, let's see, the future of George W. Bush's Iraq is brighter than that of George W. Bush's America. Maybe we should just make W. president of the Iraq and hire someone else to do the job here then. Seems fair to me.

Also on Thursday: "If we stop fighting the terrorists in Iraq," Bush said, the "suiciders" would "plan attacks elsewhere, in America and other free nations."
Ok, the extreme naivety of this statment and the simplistic nature of this world view is scary, but even ignoring all that, the statment has problems. Suiciders? That's not even a word.
And this from Don Rumsfeld, speaking about the likelihood of scheduled January elections in Iraq: "Let's say you tried to have an election, and you could have it in three-quarters or four-fifths of the country, but some places you couldn't because the violence was too great. Well, that's it. ... So you have an election that's not quite perfect."
Because if there's anything this administration knows well, it's imperfect elections. Welcome back Rummy, glad to see they let you out of your cage.

And finally, to those of you reading these statements and still wondering what's wong with them, please don't forget to vote on November 3rd.
