Rumsfeld Speaks

At a National Press Club speech today that i just watched on CSPAN:
"Think if we hadn't perservered in the revolutionary war. They wanted to fire George Washington!"
Cute. Among other reactions....

Are you really, um, comparing George Washington to, um....GWB? Yourself? Tom DeLay?

If I can find a full transcript, i will post it.

Update:An AFP story notes that at the same Press Club talk, Rummy "acknowledges surveillance of civilians in US."

This C-SPAN live stuff's great.

    Ha. what a moron. He also recently made a similar comparison between Hugo Chavez (leader of Venezuela)and Hitler.

    Indidentally, Chavez has the best nickname for GW-- "Mister Danger". I hope it catches on.

    When your administration is urging Hamas to disarm while Israelis still occupy Palestinian territory, methinks it wise to steer pretty fucking clear of the Revolutionary War metaphors.
