Quotes and Denials

Quote of the day from Paul Krugman (NY Times columnist):
"Read the speeches Howard Dean gave before the Iraq war, and compare them with Colin Powell's pro-war presentation to the U.N. Knowing what we know now, it's clear that one man was judicious and realistic, while the other was spinning crazy conspiracy theories. But somehow their labels got switched in the way they were presented to the public by the news media."
Bush's teleconference with soldiers in Iraq was staged and the rehearsal was accidently(?) fed to the satellite. Press Secretary Scott McClellan got pretty irked with the press when they questioned why the troops had to be coached.
One Good Move has the "train wreck".
