"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Saturday, May 08, 2004


Look, you can defend Don Rumsfeld or you can not defend Don Rumsfeld. But Dick Cheney pulled an Al Gore* today. From CNN's main page on the Iraq prisoner abuse scandal:
And Saturday, Vice President Dick Cheney issued a rare weekend statement of support for embattled Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. "As a former secretary of defense, I think Donald Rumsfeld is the best secretary of defense the United States has ever had. People ought to let him do his job," he said.
Dick, you mean that the guy who said we could invade and stabilize Iraq "on the cheap" with a small, mobile military force, and a guy who thinks in passive voice is the best Defense Secretary in the history of the United States? Hey Dick, you were a better Defense Secretary!

Well, Dick, thank you very much. Of MoveOn, Media Fund, Americans Coming Together, or Kerry's campaign, which one should use your quote in an ad first?

* - The vast-right-wing-conspiracy types mad a large fuss over an Al Gore speech during zippergate (what will we tell the children?) calling Bill Clinton "one of our greatest presidents".
