Rice caught in lie

Damn. I feel so let down. A member of the Bush regime lied. My whole decade is ruined. Sniffle, sniffle.

Jimmy Carter's courageous efforts to broker Mideast peace have predictably sent the wingnutosphere howling (much as they do about everything). With the Bush White House having such a weak grasp on foreign affairs, it was inevitable they'd chime in too.

Last week, Bush's Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was in Kuwait, where she declared, "We counseled President Carter against going to the region and particularly against having contact with Hamas."

Oh yeah? Carter says he was never told this!

Even most of those who thought Jimmy Carter led a failed presidency felt he was one of the most honest Presidents. But the Bush regime has lied about (among other things) Iraq having weapons of mass destruction to draw America into the war. So who are you going to believe? I think we'd all believe Carter before believing a Bush official.

While the Bush regime tries to punish Carter for meeting with leaders of Hamas, it sends its own Secretary of State to Kuwait, a country run by a totalitarian dictatorship that banned 'Fahrenheit 9/11'. What is it with Bush being so cozy with right-wing dictatorships? Probably has something to do with the fact that Bush is a right-wing dictator. (Remember those elections you stole, George?)
