Condi 'n' Cheney Execute Coordinated Cross-Network Lie-a-Thon

Ah yes, Dr. Ferragamo and Tricky Dick covered all the bases this morning, and each was a busy, busy television star, much to our delight and amazement! And just look at that beautiful shot up top! That's the real Condi, not the celebrated Condibot! The Condibot, after all, is not capable of such complex furrowing.

Anyway, Condi took Face the Nation and Fox News Sunday while Cheney had oodles of fun on Meet the Press, and wouldn't you know it? They both said exactly the same things! Neato! It turns out that despite all conventional logic, and in the face of every single shred of evidence, that Saddam Hussein and Al Queda were thick as thieves! Here's Condi's spirited defense of her administration's fantasyland version of the truth, via Think Progress:
Rice tried to pin the blame on then CIA Director George Tenet, saying he said, “there were ties going on between Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein’s regime going back for a decade.” But in July, Tenet told the Senate Intelligence Committee that “the White House pressured him and that he agreed to back up the administration’s case for war despite his own agents’ doubts about the intelligence it was based on.”

Rice also tried to dismiss the Senate report as being after-the fact, stating, “Now, are we learning more now that we have access to people like Saddam Hussein’s intelligence services? Of course.” But as Wallace pointed out, a Defense Intelligence Agency report from Feb. 2002 — before the U.S. invasion — also concluded that Iraq and Al Qaeda had no relationship: “Iraq is unlikely to have provided bin Laden any useful CB, that’s chemical or biological, knowledge or assistance.” Rice said she did not remember seeing that report.
Well, sure, if Condi hasn't seen the report, it can't possibly be true, right? How about Dick?
This morning on Meet the Press, Cheney repeatedly cited Zarqawi as the link between pre-war Iraq and al-Qaeda. When Tim Russert mentioned the Senate Intelligence Committee report, Cheney said he “hadn’t seen it.
Well, that settles it! The brightest minds in America totally agree, and so do Condi and Dick!

OMG, I did not realize Condi was actually half Klingon! That is so cool. Look at those brow ridges - just amazing what you can do with surgery these days. Under normal circumstances, you can hardly see them.

Brow wrinkles are 'dee rigure' for tucking things like hankies into. And I was told by an anonymous (and somewhat dead) insider that Condi occasionally likes to bring along her Singing Flea Orchestra. Perhaps that could explain the occasional constipated grimaces she indulges in?

When you cover news about Condi and Dick at the same time, I think you should use a cute nickname such as one of the following: Condick, Condolick, Dondoleeza, Dickoleeza, or lastely, Dickeeza. I mean, if it's good enough for Brad and Jen...

Oh, and great blog!

Dr. Photo-op's Klingon origins explain both her love of pageantry and fondness for slaughter. Today is a good day [for poor people's children] to die! K'plah!

Rice's "smile" here reminds me of the facial expression of that vulgar woman (Katie something) who is the new anchor of the CBC evening news...

Princess, did you get this shot from the ASEAN Conference?

Ha ha! Not that exact one, but a similar from the same performance. Wow, that's exceptionally ghoulish!

That's not Nancy!

I'm convinced Condi and Dick are having a contest to see who can be the biggest prick.
So far, I think it's a tie.

The resemblance between Condi and a Klingon in that photo is nothing short of uncanny.
