    But the problem with the Bushies has never been that they lie; it's that they lie soooooooooo badly.

    Maybe.  Maybe not.

    Remember - many Americans still believe Saddam had something to do with 9/11, that WMD have been found, and that Bush is a "regular guy."  I remeber seeing a poll where something like 30% of Americans thought that at least a few of the 9/11 hijackers were Iraqis.

    The Bushies know that th average American is too damn busy trying to scrape out a living to pay attention to anything but the simplest sound bite.

    This terror report correction seems like big news to us, but I guarantee that in 2 weeks most people won't remember ever hearing it, and they will STILL believe terror is DOWN since Shrubby started "getting tough."

    Sigh.

      I can't read minds.

      Especially what those other minds will be thinking in the future.

        No I can't read minds either.  If I could I might peer into Cheney's soul-less black hole and.....no, that would be too frightening.

        Seriously though, I don't pretend to know what people will be thinking in the future.   My prediction is based on how things seem to have worked in the past.

        I hope I am wrong, I really do.  I hope the terror report gaffe resonates with the American people, and they look at it and say "Damn, those guys are liars."  It constantly amazes me what people can be exposed to in terms of lies, and how they can go on believing them even after the lie is exposed fully.

        •  Mostly they are saying, (none)
          "I'm not interested."

          And underlying that, "I don't know who's telling the truth, and I don't know how to figure out which is."

          Add in the, "I can't keep up with it all" and "I haven't time."
