*and out of touch*

Establishment Washington Post is the most current apologist for the liar BUSH's war... virtually endorsing the Loserman..the most-booed candidate by members of his own party:

"....He's {Al Gore's} not the only Democrat who thinks he can have it both ways, pandering to anti-Bush passion while protecting his national-security flank. .......
Sen. Joe Lieberman has found plenty to criticize in the Bush administration foreign policy without abandoning his longstanding support of American strength and democracy promotion. It's an honorable position, and one that doesn't depend on portraying everyone else as poor saps duped by wizardly Bush propaganda...."

Wizardly Bush propaganda? How about incredibly misinformed and gullible Americans?
Has the Washington Post forgotten this?
I certainly haven't!

Many Misinformed About Iraq, Sept. 11 Attacks
June 15, 2003:
"...A third of the American public believes U.S. forces found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, according to a recent poll. And 22 percent said Iraq actually used chemical or biological weapons. Before the war, half of those polled in a survey said Iraqis were among the 19 hijackers on Sept. 11, 2001....."

...Meanwhile, George ("I once took the blame--along with everyone else but Bush") Tenet, smelly and filthy from the Iraq-war lead-up, is allowed four Washington Post pages to try to regain his dignity and reputation:
Just as the Tony Blair Government was lining up Geoff Hoon as the fall guy for the David Kelly affair,
Blair is suddenly in deep water himself.. as the trail leads to him!

"...Apocalyptic preacher Jack Van Impe is claiming that he was contacted by Condoleezza Rice’s office and the White House Office of Public Liaison for an “outline” of his take on world events. ...He has predicted that the end of the world will strike somewhere between 2003 and 2012..."

'..“I was contacted a few weeks ago by the Office of Public Liaison for the White House and by the National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice to make an outline. And I’ve spent hours preparing it. I will release this information to the public in September, but it’s in his hands. He will know exactly what is going to happen in the Middle East and what part he will have under the leading of the Holy Spirit of God. So, it’s a tremendous time to be alive....”

The Sin of Pride
Vision Thing: A scholar wonders if Bush has the humility to see the nuance of this conflict

By Martin E. Marty

"...Christian theologians are wary when Bush uses the words of Jesus to draw neat lines and challenge the whole rest of the world: if you are not for us, or with us, you are against us. Without question, belief in American democracy as one of God’s blessings is part of the move against Iraq. But, as theologians in a number of faiths remind us, the demonization of the enemy—an “us and them” mentality—can inhibit self-examination and repentant action, critical components of any faith...."
