Rove's Remarks Redux: Inconveniently Accurate

You've probably seen similar quotes around, but let me remind you of these gems:

We’ve got to ask, why is this man [bin Laden] so popular around the world? Why are people so supportive of him in many countries that are riddled with poverty? He’s been out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day-care facilities, building health-care facilities, and the people are extremely grateful. -- Democratic Senator Patty "I'm an F'n' Moron" Murray

I still giggle like a retard on happy-gas when I hear about the "day-care facilities" bin Ladin builds. You know-- because Osama bin Ladin's all about making life easier for workin' moms.

Nothing makes him happier than to see a woman pursuing a high-powered career while dropping the little ones off at the Magic Madrassa Happytime Day School.

I've resisted pronouncing a sentence before guilt is found. I still have this old-fashioned notion that even with people like Osama, who is very likely to be found guilty, we should do our best not to, in positions of executive power, not to prejudge jury trials. . . -- Then Democratic candidate for president, now DNC Head Howard Dean

Remember, he wasn't afraid to pre-judge Tom DeLay's guilt.

I guess you can suspend niceties like not prejudging jury trials when you're facing an implacable and evil enemy like Tom DeLay. But with a misunderstood peasant reformer like Osama bin Ladin-- wouldn't want to insinuate any guilt.

And I'm not quoting it (always leave something behind to click on, I says), but there's that little matter of Kerry quibbling over whether the "war on terror" (always scare-quotes around it, as far as liberals go) was actually a war or not.

What.

Ever.
