That's Bond, Kit Bond
Are Republicans unbelievably daft or perhaps just exceptionally shameless liars? I am going to go out on a limb here and say "not mutually exclusive." This week we give you corporate crony Kit Bond--the good Senator from Missouri. Bond claims that the recent National Intelligence Estimate (NIE), arguing that Al Qaeda is back up to pre-9/11 strength, is a good thing.
Bond Translation: we are "safer."
Huh? Yup, he is either missing part of his frontal lobe, is a tribute to mendacity, or most likely, both. I don't see this coming up in a campaign commercial when you're up again in 2010, do you Mr. Bond?
Remember that's Bond, Kit Bond. Just like the secret agent, but not really at all.
