Another Day, Another 17,000 Lies By Condoleezza Rice

Here's just one from her interview today on NPR:

The United States was very involved in encouraging the Palestinians to move to democracy and to have free and fair elections, which brought to power Mahmoud Abbas....the Palestinians have elected a man in Mahmoud Abbas and a prime minister, now, in Salam Fayad...

Abbas was elected, but Fayad, of course, was not. He was appointed by Abbas, which Abbas had the right to do when declaring a state of emergency under Article 101 of the Palestinian Basic Law. But any state of emergency could not exceed thirty days without the approval of the Palestinian parliament, where Hamas holds a majority. Wonderfully enough, those thirty days are over today, making Fayad's appointment illegal at exactly the moment Rice was lying about him being elected.

Whoa, man, don't be calling my girl Condi no liar. Palestinia is like halfway around the world - who can keep track of every little thing that happens over there? Sheesh.

What else would you expect from an Uncle Tomillina?

I'm sure Ms. Rice is REQUIRED to lie for this Administration. Many things this Administration has done have failed, are failing, and will fail under the light of TRUTH. So Ms. Rice can hardly be going around laying out the TRUTH, as OUR President would concider it counterproductive.

I didn't get to the part about Palastakians; she started lecturing immediately and I could only take the first few sentences when I had to shut her the **** up by twisting the dial to seriously off.

I heard part of the interview in the car driving home, but had to turn it off after the first few few lies. Just couldn't take it.
