I think we can let this one speak for itself aside from briefly mentioning a link to the original story.

Pat Robertson, an ardent Bush supporter, said he had that conversation with the president in Nashville, Tennessee, before the March 2003 invasion. He described Bush in the meeting as "the most self-assured man I've ever met in my life."

"You remember Mark Twain said, 'He looks like a contented Christian with four aces.' I mean he was just sitting there like, 'I'm on top of the world,' " Robertson said on the CNN show, "Paula Zahn Now."

"And I warned him about this war. I had deep misgivings about this war, deep misgivings. And I was trying to say, 'Mr. President, you had better prepare the American people for casualties.' "

Robertson said the president then told him, "Oh, no, we're not going to have any casualties."

So apparently he's not a liar, he's just incomprehensibly stupid. Well. I feel better in that case.

    It's like bizarro world.

    But there were no casualties, right? Just like he said.

    No, I am sorry Ed. I watch the news pretty closely and I swear I remember there being at least one, possibly two. But of course there haven't been any since major combat operations were declared over on the deck of some aircraft carrier….right?

    You are thinking of Jessica Lynch. She did not die, but was in fact rescued in a situation that went a long way toward clarifying whether or not our colors run.
