Quick, guess who said this last week:
"I still believe there was credible evidence of weapons of mass destruction, and of connections between the Iraqi government and al-Qaida."
Is the suspense killing you? Do you imagine that this evidence of delusion came from some looney tune like Karl Rove or Donnie Rumsfeld? Well, I have news for you. These words came from our own junior moron in the Senate, Dick Burr. I'm not talking two years ago. Or even two months ago. I'm talking LAST FREAKIN' WEEK, hot on the heels of our own government's conclusive findings that there were NO connections between Iraq and al-Qaida.
The quote came in an interview with Tim Funk of the Charlotte Observer, who didn't find the lunacy shocking enough to warrant a follow up question.
Go read the sad story yourself and get an up-close-and-personal view of what faith-based government looks like. Dick Burr "still believes" that the entire intelligence community in the United States was wrong and that George Bush was right. After a sanitized tour of the safest parts of Iraq, the junior Senator knows what he knows, and no amount of facts are going to change his feeble mind.
Plus he has this stellar observation, "the next four or five months" are critical. No shit.
PS Given his oh-so-tough interviewing techniques, I'd say Tim Funk should get a promotion to the White House press corps. Instead of being a stenographer for idiot senators, he could help publish talking points from our idiot president.
