Okay. How idiotic are the people in the traditional media? Speaker Pelosi said quite firmly that the CIA misled her about the Bush administration's torture policy back in 2002. She was adamant. And, yes, it was torture.
Yet, traditional media types can't grasp that concept. Surely, they're breathlessly intimating, Pelosi must be wrong. Do they not remember what really happened back in 2002-2003? I made the mistake of watching the start of the TODAY Show this morning. Matt Lauer and the ever painful Kelly O'Donnell seem shocked, shocked that Pelosi would say someone in the Bush government would have lied back in 2002. For Christ Sakes, George Bush, Dick Cheney and their entire administration were flat out lying to the American people back then about terrorism and Iraq. They misled us into a war -- abetted by the traditional media.
Do these idiots in the media not remember that? The likes of Lauer, O'Donnell and their colleague covering the White House, David Gregory, were regurgitating the Bush team's lies -- and echoing the drumbeat for war. It was appalling -- beyond appalling -- that no one challenged the lies back then. Now, they can't grasp that someone in the government was lying about these issues. Idiots.
Here we go...
