Rummy vs. Russert
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6923245/ is the link to the Meet The Press program transcript from this past Sunday in which Sec.Def Rumsfeld gives Russert a long overdue and well deserved public wedgie. The meat of the interview stems from the up-armouring question asked of Rummy by one of the troops when he visited Iraq.
Russert played the video clip of the question from the grunt and then played a patched-up, edited and incomplete answer from Rummy, part of which included the now famous, (and true) line, "You go to war with the army you have, not the one you want". Following the clip Russert began his questioning and Rummy shuts him down. The floor mopping that follows is priceless.
If you can stomach it, the rest of the MTP transcript is Ted "hic-up" Kennedy regurgitating the nonsense he's become famous for. He keeps referring to his "plan" and the "way it should have been done". Nobody knows what his plan is, (beyond asking the U.N. to explore the Saddam kerfuffle with a few committees and some cocktail receptions), but who cares?
Despite Russert's non-follow-ups to Kennedy's lunatic claims and assertions, ol' Ted still manages to inflict great harm to his party just by leaking sour and stale gas out of his mouth. And Rummy preceding the bloviating cow only makes it all the more apparent. -Wb
Environmentalists blame Ted 'hic' Kennedy for the majority of the Global Warming Gasses that are speeding up the greenhouse effect. - "He is worse than the stupid cows as far as blowing gas goes." said one activist.
Demands for him to "Put a cork in it" were met with even louder and longer blasts of hot air.
