“And Iran declared war on us when they took hostages from our embassy in 1979. So they are indeed at war with us, for whatever that’s worth to you.” – Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit.

Hmmm, then I guess that makes Reynolds’ hero and favored jerk off material (Reagan & Co.) guilty of treason. Nice. Think about that the next time your hand creeps down into your dirty tightie whities, Glenn!

“I’m not sure anything went wrong.” – Tony Snow on Iraq.

No additional comments necessary.

“By the way, a lot of us are also very concerned about the possibility of a, quote, ‘Tet Offensive.’ You know, some large-scale tact that could then switch American public opinion the way that the Tet Offensive did.” – Senator John McCain discussing public opinion of the war in Iraq.

Switch the American public opinion? To what? 100% opposed? Looks like Bush has been slipping McCain polls from 2003.

“We are very fortunate to have President Bush…” – 2008 Republican Presidential Candidate Rudy Giuliani, virtually ending his campaign as soon as it began!

How can a doctor “determine that a person actually did incur that sexual assault. Are they going to take the word of that individual? You could see individuals coming in that just wanted to make sure that last night’s stand didn’t result in a pregnancy and basically say that they had been a sexual assault” to get the morning after pill. – Republican (CO) state Sen. David Schultheis.

Maybe because women can go to their local CVS or Target and purchase the medication for far cheaper than they would by getting it through the hospital?

And what, exactly, does this say about Schultheis’ opinion women? That they’ll put on a show to get medication they could pick up a block from their house? Another example of just how much reich-wingers hate America.

Tony Snow Smackdown!

My favorite part of yesterday’s press briefing:

Q “Yes, Tony, thank you. Two questions. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Congressman Maurice Hinchy of New York have just introduced companion bills called the ‘Media Ownership Reform Act,’ which are an attempt to revive the ‘fairness doctrine’ for TV and radio with no such government control proposed for newspapers, magazines or wire services. My question, does the President believe that we should revive the so-called ‘fairness doctrine’ which was repealed during the Reagan administration?”

MR. SNOW: “You know, Les, we’ll take that up if it becomes a real issue.”

Q: “Okay. President Kennedy’s Assistant Secretary of Commerce, Bill Ruder, said, ‘We had a massive strategy to use the ‘fairness doctrine’ to challenge and harass the right-wing broadcasters and hoped the challenge would be so costly to them that they would be inhibited and decide it was too expensive to continue.’ And my question, do you remember that statement reported by The Washington Times on September 5, 1993?”

MR. SNOW: “No. Although I do have some memories of the Kennedy administration, that particular utterance does not rise to thought.”

Q: “That was from an article headlined, ‘Return of the Fairness Demon,’ and the byline was, Tony Snow.”

Snow immediately turned to another reporter amidst laughter from the gallery, embarrassed and chastised!

“The Constitution does not say that every citizen has the right to habeas corpus.” – Attorney General Alberto Gonzales testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee today.

Unless Gonzales doesn’t believe the Constitution applies to all U.S. citizens, we need a new Attorney General that has actually read the Constitution:

Article I, Sec. 9:

“The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it.”

Gee – I don’t seem to remember being invaded, or a rebellion breaking out, do you?
