Defense Department Disavows Santorum’s WMD ClaimsTricky Ricky is a desperate. Down by 18 points against his opponent, Bob Casey, he will say or do anything. If he ever had any honor or scruples (doubtful at best), they are now gone. He is pissing all over our troops and what's left of our country's reputation.
Today, Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) and Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-MI) held a press conference and announced “we have found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.” Santorum and Hoekstra are hyping a document that describes degraded, pre-1991 munitions that were already acknowledged by the White House’s Iraq Survey Group and dismissed.
Fox News’ Jim Angle contacted the Defense Department who quickly disavowed Santorum and Hoekstra’s claims. A Defense Department official told Angle flatly that the munitions hyped by Santorum and Hoekstra are “not the WMD’s for which this country went to war.”
As Atrios puts it:
Dying for Ricky's BullshitHe is a lying freak.
Despite my reputation for seething blogospheric rage, I'm actually rarely that angry, but little Ricky lying about what's going on in Iraq, putting his party and his re-election above country while shitting all over the soldiers that are in harm's way really pisses me off.
What a fucking wanker.
As Imus put it this morning:
I like Santorum and Sean Hannity, but they're crazy people. (you can watch Santorum later this morning -- around 8:30am -- on Imus on MSNBC.Rick Santorum: LYING, BATSHIT CRAZY FREAK.
Vote for Bob Casey.
Yeah, that's right.
I said it.
As anyone who's ever read this blog knows, I can't stand that goddamn anti-choice, lisping, Alito-loving wuss Bob Casey, but Lil Ricky has finally done the impossible -- he's got me endorsing BOB CASEY -- and for that, I hate him even more.
FUCK YOU, RICKY
