Shocked and Horrified - can it be true?

News tonight announced that some boffins in the good ol' US of A have calculated that the Bush adminsitration has made at least (AT LEAST!!) 900 untrue statements about the war in Iraq.

No! Crikey. Who would have thought it. (Yes, do read that with dripping sarcasm and sparkling wit).
So, who have the media been "pandering" to? I find it hard to believe that they have only just figured this out by themselves, what level of journalism has uncovered this fact now when clearly the facts have been incorrect all the time surely? Tut tut. Off to the naughty step with them.

I'd be far more shocked to be told that they've made a single true statement... the Bush years have been the Dark Ages for America.

It is all really Emperors New Clothes isn't it? They decide not to see any of it until such time as they want to.
Makes me mad.

Glad you had such a great day out with the wine & all. I still get a lump when I see Lyttleton Harbour.

Hi Steve, yes indeedy! I have relatives loiving in USA and they are equally amazed.
Meggie - I love that analogy!! As for Lyttelton, its a pretty wee place in Summer isn't it? The camp my daughter went to is above the hills and is called Living Springs (you may remember it?) - it is actually run by some "god-botherers" but they rent it out to schools.

Wow. Imagine that. Only 900? Seems awfully low to me.

I pretty much go by the idea that whenever Bush's lips are moving, he is lying.

Gosh, now what a useful research project that was!!!? 900, 9000, 90, or 9. what does it matter? After 9 lies surely it does not? I simply do not understand how anyone can trust Bush.

Cute panda though.

Now there's a thankless task - counting Bush's lies. I'd even rather have my job!

Mike, RB and Rol- absorootley! Would be a quicker job counting when he DIDN'T lie.
