San Fran Nan Changes Her Story Again: When I Said the CIA Briefers Had Lied to Me, I Meant the Bush Administration Had Lied to Me

Um. Okay. Apparently she mistook her CIA briefer, who introduced himself as such, for Vice President Dick Cheney. Which isn't as impossible as it sounds; I see Dick Cheney's face everywhere -- in rainbows, in curve of a baby's smile, on my girlfriend's back as we tenderly fornicate.

I assume she similarly has a bad case of Cheney obsession.

UPDATE: Pelosi's office has responded with a gentle statement supporting the work of the intelligence community, saying she was criticizing the Bush administration, not the bureaucrats at the CIA:

"We all share great respect for the dedicated men and women of the intelligence community who are deeply committed to the safety and security of the American people. My criticism of the manner in which the Bush Administration did not appropriately inform Congress is separate from my respect for those in the intelligence community who work to keep our country safe. What is important now is to be united in our commitment to ensuring the security of our country; that, and how Congress exercises its oversight responsibilities, will continue to be my focus as we move forward."

Seems to me a pretty clear attempt to walk back yesterday's fresh new story that she had been lied to. She doesn't want the documents coming out that prove her to be a liar, so she's attempting a "Let's just call it a draw" withdrawal of the claim.

But she said yesterday, clearly:

Q: Madame Speaker, just to be clear, you are accusing the CIA of lying to you in September 2002?

A: Yes, of misleading the Congress of the United States. Misleading the Congress of the United States.

And now, now that the CIA is calling her a liar and further damaging her dwindling authority, she decides she really meant it was the Bush Administration, and not the CIA at all.


Thanks to AHFF Geoff.

* If this seems childish, well, it is. I made this up to be as/even more childish than lefty bloggers' "BushHitler McHaliburton" stupidities.

But while I invented the monicker to mock them... now I kinda like it.
