Nigergate talking points

Just so we don't forget the lies that most idiotic Republicans believe about Wilson's trip to Niger, John Hinderaker is there to bring us up to speed on the most up-to-date lies. He said on CNN this weekend that Wilson, "reported to the CIA that what he found out was that Saddam Hussein in fact had tried to buy uranium from Niger in the late 1990s. He then wrote an op-ed in which he lied about his own report."

Look for other Grinchs to try to steal Fitzmas by claiming that the indictments are not the result of illegal behavior, but only "interpretations of legal technicalities." The run-away prosecutor argument will likely be trotted out as well. Get ready for the spin-cycle.

I love how Sen. Kay Hutchinson now feels that perjury is a "technicality" when its her party in the crosshairs. Compare here comments here with those from a short five years ago:

Sen. Hutchison: "The reason that I voted to remove him from office is because I think the overridding issue here is that truth will remain the standard for perjury and obstruction of justice in our criminal justice system and it must not be gray. It must not be muddy." [AP, 2/12/99]

Its pathetic that these clowns think the American people won't remember this - and pathetic that they're probably right.

OK, this is now getting scary. I just saw Paul's comment, which is 6:11:14PM Eastern. I posted at 5:49:00PM Eastern -- and Media Matters had jumped on this at 1:09 PM Eastern.

Too funny!

Colbert did a simulated interview of the Hutch on his show.

Remember, not only is she totally full of shit, but she was indicted in Texas for corruption and only escaped because she drew a crooked judge.
