Pants on Fire


The remake is coming out soon, starring John Kerry.

"Integrity, integrity, integrity." In the third presidential debate, that's what John Kerry said his mother told him to emphasize in his run for the Presidency. It turns out that maybe Kerry, well, forgot what his mother told him.

This story in the Washington Times details how Senator Kerry did not speak to the entire U.N Security Council about Iraq, although he told the nation he did so in the second presidential debate.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Maybe no other news organization will pick it up. Surely Kerry and co. will attack the source. But the article looks like pretty good shoe-leather reporting to me.

The tongue of a man is tied on this,
On the liar who lies to nations,
The liar who lies to the people.
The tongue of a man is tied on this
And ends: To hell with ’em all.
To hell with ’em all.

Carl Sandburg, The Liars Volume: Smoke and Steel - IV, 1922
