Too silly to answer, but...


WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday phoned President Bush to air her complaints over Vice President Dick Cheney's comments that the Congressional Democrats' plan for Iraq would "validate the Al Qaeda strategy." [well, it does.]
Pelosi, who said she could not reach the president, said Cheney's comments wrongly questioned critics' patriotism [As usual, he never mentioned patriotism. But if the shoe fits...] and ignored Bush's call for openness on Iraq strategy. [he's just being open.]
"You cannot say as the president of the United States, 'I welcome disagreement in a time of war,' and then have the vice president of the United States go out of the country and mischaracterize a position of the speaker of the House and in a manner that says that person in that position of authority is acting against the national security of our country," the speaker said. [why the hell not?]

The quarrel began in Tokyo, where Cheney used an interview to criticize Pelosi and Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., over their plan to place restrictions on Bush's request for an additional $93 billion for the Iraq war to make it difficult or impossible to send 21,500 extra troops to Iraq. [And that plan is different from what al Qaeda wanted....how? Any of you chomskies want to fill me in?]

"I think if we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we will do is validate the Al Qaeda strategy," the vice president told ABC News. "The Al Qaeda strategy is to break the will of the American people ... try to persuade us to throw in the towel and come home, and then they win because we quit." [that's what al Qaeda wants. That's what the Dems want. They are allies. Naughty naughty Dick Cheney, telling the truth so bluntly..]
