Predictable... So UTTERLY Predictable...

Right there in front of God and the Committee on Presidential Debates, George W Bush told his biggest whopper yet. With a straight face, he asserted he had never said he wasn't worried about Osama Bin Whatzhisname. "That's what you call an exaggeration," he wheedled.

By all rights, this should give the media all the excuse it needs to replay the clip from the President's press conference earlier this year when he said exactly the words John Kerry quoted him as saying. Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over AGAIN!

From March 2003, when somebody asked him about Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda while troops were massed on the Kuwaiti frontier with Iraq poised for invasion:
Well, deep in my heart, I know the man is on the run if he's alive at all.... [H]e's a person who's now been marginalized. His network is -- his host government has been destroyed. He's the ultimate parasite who found weakness, exploited it, and met his match.... So I don't know where he is. You know, I just don't spend that much time on him, Kelly, to be honest with you. [...] I truly am not that concerned about him.

Is that the story today? No. The story is Lynne Cheney complaining about John Kerry answering a question about the issue of homosexuality by referencing Mary Cheney, the Vice President's openly gay daughter.

Fscking whorehoppers. Utterly predictable: fscking whorehoppers. Never forget this fact about the media.
