More headlines like these, please

This Knight Ridder article: In challenging war's critics, administration tinkers with truth offers a smackdown on the Cheney Bu$hCo administration's latest distortion of the truth in their criticism of those who dare to criticize the administration.
ASSERTION: In his speech, Bush noted that "more than a hundred Democrats in the House and the Senate - who had access to the same intelligence - voted to support removing Saddam Hussein from power."

CONTEXT: This isn't true.
Snark! I only wish that the headline editors had been a little less cautious. However, let's give them credit for not using a headline that read: Administration to war critics: You're hurting the troops" which is what we would have been reading before the MSM smelled blood in the water and relocated its spine.

In today's WSJ, we have this gem: Bush's Approval Rating Falls Again, Poll Shows. The article details the results of the latest Harris Poll that places Dubya's approval rating at 34% and Dr. Evil's approval rating slipping to just 30%, down from 35% in August. Even Condi's approval rating has slipped to 52% down from 57%.

You know things are bad for the administration when Joe Scarborough is complimenting Barbara Boxer on MSNBC's Scarborough Country for the great job she's doing on the Hill for calling for the panel of Big Oil execs to be brought back to the senate, under oath this time, to answer charges that they lied before congress. Even FoxNews has this headline: Dems: Oil Execs Lied at Senate Hearing. Yes, that's right folks... FoxNews.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
