    I knew it would be nonsense.

    •  Yep, and as jbeach says, (6+ / 0-)

      it's not as if I was smarter than anyone else. But anyone paying attention to Knight Ridder's reporting and especially Scott Ritter's statements (remember how Cheney immediately cast aspersions on Ritter, saying he couldn't vouch for his mental state?) knew that the speech would be nothing more than a PR effort to win the public's support.

      I'm glad to know somebody else spared him/herself the aggravation of watching that speech.
