Whoops.

Reported everywhere, and now reported here. During the debates I thought that, if true, the following statement was a real blow to Edward's experience issues. Cheney to Edwards:

"Now, in my capacity as vice president, I am the president of Senate, the presiding officer. I'm up in the Senate most Tuesdays when they're in session. The first time I ever met you was when you walked on the stage tonight,"

Whoops. Evidently they've met at least three times.

Last thought: I think the real winner of the debates so far is Jim Lehrer. By far. Gwen Ifill stumbled over questions, had to repeat herself, and let the debate fall behind to the point where half of the time on new questions were spent on old questions. Now it just remains to be seen if Lehrer low-key mastery can stand up against the morning-TV scrubbed pleasantries of Charles Gibson.

NO, REALLY: WHOOPS.

The CIA has just announced, as part of its inquiry about pre-war intelligence, that Iraq posessed no WMDs at the time of our invasion and its nuclear program was "deteriorating, not advancing".

Whoops. Guess that makes our President a fucking liar. Time to send Uncle Colin back to the U.N. with some better cartoon drawings of mobile biological weapons labs.
