We're In Good Hands

Neo-Comedy Legends: (l. to r.) Richard Perle, David Frum,
Ken Adelman & Dick Cheney.

How could things have ended up so shitty with such
great minds advising our fearless leader?

Richard Perle: "Huge mistakes were made, and I
want to be very clear on this: They were not made
by neoconservatives, who had almost no voice in
what happened, and certainly almost no voice in
what happened after the downfall of the regime in
Baghdad. I'm getting damn tired of being described
as an architect of the war. I was in favor of bringing
down Saddam. Nobody said, 'Go design the
campaign to do that.' I had no responsibility for

David Frum: "I always believed as a speechwriter
that if you could persuade the president to commit
himself to certain words, he would feel himself
committed to the ideas that underlay those words.
And the big shock to me has been that although the
president said the words, he just did not absorb the
ideas. And that is the root of, maybe, everything."

Kenneth Adelman: "The problem here is not a
selling job. The problem is a performance job.…
Rumsfeld has said that the war could never be lost
in Iraq, it could only be lost in Washington. I don't
think that's true at all. We're losing in Iraq."

Dick Cheney: QUACK-QUACK!

And don't miss the sequel, when those wacky neo-cons
put several unidentified Iraqi government documents
online for everyone to see -- including detailed
instructions for building a nuclear bomb!

Hail, Hail Freedonia!
