Letters, Oh We Get Letters, The So F'ing What? Edition

ThePilot.com : Column Was 'Amazing': "

Dusty Rhoades' June 10 column was truly amazing. I have followed Dusty's columns and recognize his disappointment in the ethics and character of President Clinton.

Clinton on the brain, still. Will this obsession with the Clenis never end?

I would like to request a definition of the words "lie" and "lying," as perceived by Mr. Rhoades.

Lying: What Scooter Libby was convicted of.

Lie: What Scooter Libby was convicted of telling.

I would also appreciate it if he would quote one lie spoken by President Bush.

Soon as you tell me where in the column I specifically attributed a lie to President Bush. I'll wait.

Valerie Plame was the "smokin' hot CIA WMD" specialist whom the taxpayers paid enough to buy a Jaguar convertible.

So? You think Scooter Libby drove a Moped to work?

Why was her husband needed in the first place, and how much did that cost?

Ask the CIA. They sent him. And who cares, anyway?

The British never changed their opinion.

So? The Bushistas did. Read the column again.

Little children learn that calling other people names does not improve the character or ethics of the people they wish to idolize.

I suppose that's true. Again, so?

This is where my mother would have said, "The truth hurts, doesn't it?" Clearly, you're hitting a nerve; they can't argue with your facts, so they're forced to resort to complaining about the way you present them.

As you said a couple of posts back, civility cuts BOTH ways. If they want you to moderate your tone, they need to moderate theirs first.

Well. To answer the question about exactly where and when did/does Bush lie - how about:

EVERY TIME HIS LIPS ARE MOVING!

:-)

Keep fighting the good fight, Dusty.
