Making Sh_t Up!



Guy Raz, NPR's resident warnographer, touts Bush's trip to the Pentagon where W was stumping for unlimited money for his Iraq holocaust.


Here was a stunning statement from Raz:
"The President is popular with the military. As he walked down one of the Pentagon famously long corridors uniformed men and women shouted and applauded; some snapped pictures. Many of them agree with the President's argument that support for the troops requires unconditional Congressional funding for the war."
"...is popular with the military." Funny, I haven't seen any updated polls of active duty military personnel since last December, but back then Bush wasn't exactly surging in popularity with the military. Take a look at this from the Military Times or this from USA Today/Gallup. So, here it is nearly December, so there should be some new polls out soon. Who knows, maybe Raz will be proved right - but for now he's just shoveling the garbage, making up facts based on his strolls down Pentagon halls.

Is it Guy Raz or the Pentagon?

Had the grave misfortune of catching Ga-ga Gooiy the she-male's glowing adoration as well (in fact when they were introducing the feature and its contributor, I hurried to boot up my BS detector). When I heard the "popular with the military" bit I just KNEW it was going to warrant a "My-T" rebuttal! Such a reckless blanket statement.
