need more stuff?

March 25, 2004

Plus, when Bush pulled him aside and said, "Find a connection," he just meant, "because I totally need to get high right now."

So Condi wants Dick Clarke to "get his story straight." (Pot calling kettle, come in kettle.) Apparently, she thinks it helps the administration to point out that when he was still on the Bush team, Clarke gave a background briefing praising the White House response to 9/11.

Or that could reinforce the impression that more Americans are increasingly coming around to: that as a matter of course, everyone on the Bush team is expected to lie to the public in order to make the White House look good.

It's also amusing that the secrecy-obsessed administration is suddenly willing — no eager — to out people who spoke on background and declassify e-mails to the NSA. As Ana pointed out to me this morning, "all we is need are few more turncoat bureaucrats and maybe we'll see the all post 9/11 stuff."

Update: It's just possible that I would have worked to find a more original metaphor if I'd known that Clarke had already used the pot/kettle one.

But probably not.

Here's another metaphor you could use:That's like a fish complaining aobut the rain.
OK, I didn't work too hard on it either, but I just happened to have it lying around.

Or that could reinforce the impression that EVEN MORE Americans are increasingly coming around to: that as a matter of course, Clarke changes his story to suit his boss-du-jour, having served under each President since Reagan. One wonders who his boss is now.
