News Roundup for 3/12/09

Moldy bread
Ari Fleischer doesn't have the freshest talking points

-Headline of the day-
"Fleischer Defends Iraq Invasion: After 9/11, ‘How Could We Take A Chance’ That Saddam Might ‘Strike Again’?"


Former White House press secretary Ari "Lie? Sure!" Fleischer reaches far, far back into the annals of neocon bullshit and says that Saddam Hussein was behind 9/11. Further, he says Barack Obama should be thankful that Bush took him out, assumedly so we don't have to worry about another Saddam-backed 9/11.

In defending the invasion of Iraq on MSNBC, Fleischer said that Obama should "say thank you every day that he inherited a world without Saddam Hussein in it," because "after September 11th, having been being hit once, how could we take a chance that Saddam Hussein might not strike again?"

I think Ari got thrown back in time, like those people on Lost, and he thinks it's still 2003, when people were still buying the "Saddam did 9/11" crap.

If he starts blaming Spain for the sinking of the Maine, we'll know he's a lot older than he looks. (Think Progress)

Don't worry, the cops are on the job. Sooner or later, somebody's gonna do something. Somebody call a celebrity! (MarkFiore.com)

-Wikipedia v. Wingnuts-
The problem with Wikipedia is that anyone can edit it, right? Not if you ask the conspiracy-minded right, who are having trouble editing it. Specifically, they're having trouble editing Barack Obama's entry to include the "fact" that he's a secret Muslim/Terr'ist/non-citizen who's on a mission to destroy America with socialism for Osama Bin Laden. It's censorship, I tell ya.

Keep in mind the report is from WorldNetDaily, run by noted homosexual Joseph Farah. He's mad because Wikipedia said he was of "Lebanese and Syrian heritage" and has promised to "kill this beast" of a website.

Still, the rightest of the right have been having real trouble getting the truth on Wikipedia -- be it about how gays are trying to destroy the family, to how abortion causes genital mushrooms, to how believing in evolution will turn you into an atheist Nazi. It's almost like all the other editors at Wikipedia are committed to keeping the site from being crazy or something.

What's the fun in that? (WorldNetDaily, via Wonkette)
