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.

Tony Snow Breaks Out the "I'm Just Too Stupid" Defense 

We were too stupid to stop 9/11. We were too stupid to distinquish between good intelligence and outright fabrication by persons with axes to grind. We were too stupid to anticpate the degree of the Iraqi insurgency. We were too stupid to anticipate the breach of the levees around New Orleans, and yada, yada, yada.

Now, Tony Snow is at at loss to explain what the new Iraqi Prime Minister said about U.S. forces and their conduct in Iraq.

"That is a little too complicated for me to try to read out," Snow said at a briefing where he was pressed to explain how al-Maliki's remarks were supposed to have been distorted. "It becomes a little convoluted and so I don't want to make a real clear characterization because it's a little hazy to me," Snow said.

Snow, just put on the clown suit now. Unless, of course, you still have some self-respect left. In that case, you should just resign.
