Making Something Out of Nothing... 

Senate Report Sees No Formal Iraq-Qaeda Ties
Contacts between Iraq and al Qaeda in the 1990s never led to a formal relationship and there is no evidence Iraq helped conduct an al Qaeda attack, a report by a bipartisan Senate committee said on Friday.
Following the Sept. 11 commission's report last month, Cheney suggested in a television interview he might have more information than the panel. The commission issued a terse statement on Tuesday saying the vice president had no more information than commission investigators.
As part of the White House response to the Sept. 11 commission's report, national security adviser Condoleezza Rice also said she believed what the panel was actually saying was that former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein did not control al Qaeda. The commission's chairmen flatly rejected her interpretation.
White House: Saddam and al Qaeda are linked.

9/11 Commission: No they're not.

White House: We have information that the commission hasn't seen.

9/11 Commission: No you don't.

White House: The commission is actually saying that Saddam has connections to al Qaeda but he's not in charge.

9/11 commission: No we're not. Quit putting words in our mouths.

Senate Committee: The 9/11 Commission is right. The White House is full of pathological liars.

White House: Move along. Nothing to see here folks. Don't cross us or we'll raise the terror alert level.

Can anyone justify re-electing this lying regime? Anyone? I didn't think so.

Wait a second... 

Bush Criticizes Edwards' Political Skills
President Bush on Wednesday curtly dismissed Democratic Sen. John Edwards' political skills and experience as a rival to his vice president, telling reporters "Dick Cheney can be president."
Who's he trying to fool? Dick Cheney is president.

Bush is criticizing Edwards lack of political experience. Edwards began his political career six years ago when he was elected to the Senate. Six years of political experience.

Bush ran for president in 2000 after serving as the governor of Texas. The governor's office was the first elected position Bush ever held. He served one and a half terms before being appointed to the presidency. One and a half terms. Six years of political experience.

We often criticize others for what we most despise about ourselves.

Let's Go Shopping 

I've added some new designs to the It's Craptastic! store. I'll be adding more soon. Bust out your credit cards.


It's IOWA stupid! 

Transcript of 'Hardball with Chris Matthews' for July 5
HOWARD FINEMAN: Well, because I think he has also taken a look at Bob Graham. And I think he also, by the way, took a look at Wes Clark.

I know that the five people who were vetted financially and personally, as I understand it, were Edwards, Gephardt, Tom Vilsack, the governor of Ohio, who I think has fallen by the wayside perhaps a little bit in the last couple hours or days, and Graham and Clark.
East coast people need to buy a fucking map and take a look at it every now and then. Howard Fineman is an NBC News political analyst. Knowing the difference between Iowa and Ohio should be a qualification for a political analyst position.

Happy Independence Day 

Bush: U.S. Is Safer With Saddam in Prison
Two Bush opponents, taken out of the crowd in restraints by police, said they were told they couldn't be there because they were wearing shirts that said they opposed the president.
The First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Celebrate your independence while you still can.
