A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Because their incompetence killed the story, that’s why! Now all the right-wing blowhards are claiming that CBS tried to slander a sitting president [sic] as if the disputed documents were the only evidence about gwb’s time in the TANG and how he happened to get there. They contend the substance of the documents now carries the taint from questions about the legitimacy of the documents themselves, a matter which is still disputed.

As any first year law student can tell you, the truth is an absolute defense to a claim of slander. Perhaps someone with the investigative resources of a major network should finally lay all the questions to rest (holding your breath is ill-advised). We still have disputed facts but no main stream media outlet will touch it.

For Katie Couric. The next time you want to lecture Michael Moore about showing more respect for gwb because he called him “Gilligan,” remember that he didn’t accuse gwb of killing Vince Foster or purposefully selling missile secrets to the Chinese.

The media double-standard and moral relativism is metastasizing in our political discourse.
