Comments: The Presidential Assasination Attempt That Didn't Bark

This can't be true, as Bill Clinton used the supposed assassination attempt as a pretext for losing his "bomb a foreign darkie" cherry, and, I mean, he's the Big Dog! Hero to many liberal bloggers! He wouldn't willingly take part in a bipartisan deception like that to reinforce American hegemony! For shame, good sir.

I'm beginning to think that "bipartisan deception" pretty much describes our government.

I wonder whether that Memory Hole would function quite so perfectly if we turned on our memories. Oh, who cares? - we'd have to open our eyes, too.

"apparently they also found no evidence that Saddam's regime attempted to kill George H.W. Bush in Kuwait in 1993."

you totally knew it.

There may not have been any operational links between Saddam and al Qaida, but there surely were spiritual ones. Enough to propel our God-fearing leadership and the nation under it into action. For God, for Country, and for Yale.
And for Billy Graham, even though he wasn't even an Ivy Leaguer.

This is supposed to be a joyous occasion, let's not bicker and quarrel over who tried to kill who . . .

JOYOUS OCCASION???(the man didn't even try)

Did Hussein try or not? It's really irrelevant. If George Bush can try to kill Saddam Hussein, then the vice versa is just as fair. Live by the sword, die by the sword.

No, I'm not advocating killing either George Bush (nor Saddam Hussein, were we to not have already killed him), for all you concern trolls out there.
