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.

Mike Pence Makes Lame Stem Cell Argument 

Michael Pence, republican from Indiana, had this to say on PBS regarding federal funding for stem cell research.

“But the debate tomorrow really is about federal funding. Inasmuch as I believe that it's morally wrong to destroy human embryonic life for the purpose of research, I think it's also, Jeffrey, additionally morally wrong to take the tax dollars of millions of pro-life Americans and use it to support research that they find morally offensive. And that's really what the debate is about tomorrow.”


I was just curious Mr. Pence, do you also think it is morally wrong to take the tax dollars of millions of Americans who are opposed the killing of innocent Iraqi women and children because they find it morally offensive and use it to support military operations in Iraq? By the way, please do not give me the “unavoidable collateral damage” argument as that cannot be morally justified when the war itself has no moral foundation.
