In a World…

A couple of interesting quotes in the news. First, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Charlie Rose:

No one was arguing that Saddam Hussein somehow had something to do with 9/11.

No one except President Bush, Dick Cheney, Ari Fleischer, and Ms. Rice herself on more than one occasion.

And then there’s House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH), who told CNN that there was no deregulation of the banking business when the Republicans were in power.

Wolf, you have to understand, there was no deregulation of anything in the financial services industries. As a matter of fact, there was an increase in regulation.

Tell us, Mr. Boehner; do the unicorns in your universe wear gold or silver ribbons on their manes? And what color is the sky?
