I'm posting links to interesting stuff because I'm in a really wierd place (mentally/emotionally) and am very disappointed about something that I know is trivial in the grand scheme of things, but still - I'm not real happy right now. On to the links.

Joe Scarborough Rips Bush On Iran NIE: He’s Either ‘Lying’ Or ‘Is Stupid’
Yesterday in his press conference, President Bush asserted that Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell told him “we have new information” on Iran’s nuclear program, but “he did not tell me what the information was.”

This morning, the cast of Morning Joe chided Bush’s claim. Co-host Willie Geist said, “It’s just not a credible answer, I’m afraid.” Host Joe Scarborough ripped into Bush, saying that president is either “lying to the American people” or is simply “stupid”:

We are left with only two options here. Either the President of the United States is lying to the American people about what happened during that meeting, or the President of the United States is stupid.

Earlier on the show, Scarborough and Pat Buchanan called for congressional subpoenas of Bush’s advisors, including Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, to determine when they knew about the latest NIE report.

I would argue that he's both a liar AND stoopid, but I've been saying that for over 7 years now, so... Robert Scheer has more.

A few months ago you alluded to a major scandal that would hit one of the campaigns but you didn't say anything other than to watch for it.
I'm now listening to the Huckabee story regarding his pushing for the release of a rapist. Is this the scandal of which you spoke? Or shall I continue to wait?

Not the same thing at all.
