Tony Snow: Idiot or Liar?

Direct quote from Tony Snow tonight on Real Time with Bill Maher after drivelling on about how great it would be that, even though the president of Iraq won't shake hands with women, there would now be women serving in government in the country:

You didn't have girls in school when Saddam was there.

But Tony, if none of Iraq's women have gone to school for the last several decades, however would they end up with women qualified to serve in government?

Now either Tony Snow is an imbecile, which I somewhat doubt, he's woefully ignorant of something he should definitely know, or he told a boldfaced lie today in public. Does someone really have to detail all the ways in which his statement was wrong?

This, in addition to his other lie during the program suggesting that Valerie Plame was the person who sent Joseph Wilson on his trip to Niger, would send the ordinary person running for cover in embarassment at being so obviously wrong. But Snow will just take his sorry arse back to FOX News where he'll probably get a pat on the back.

And here, I just wanted a little light entertainment for the evening. To top it off, Maher mentioned that only 15% of the American public believes in evolution. Maher suggested changing the country's motto to "I'm with stupid," but considering that we're also armed and dengerous, I was thinking that something like "Abandon all hope, ye who enter" would be a better fit.

I don't know why you would doubt that Snow is a moron. Remember Karen Hughes and her belief that "under God" is in our Constitution?

Re: your header...

It's not an either/or question. Tony Snow is an idiot and a liar.

I counted up Snow's lies as I watched Real Time last night. He hit 9. But he also said that he read the Libby indictment, so based on his other comments, that was probably a 10th.

I wondered if anyone else caught that "no girls were in school" BS remark. I yelled so loud at the TV when he said that blatant LIE that I scared the sleeping cat right off the back of the couch.

Jesus, there's plenty of bad things to say about Saddam without having to invent horseshit. Snow is a total moron, and the worst kind of right-wing pod person. He sounded like an animatronic Republica-bot on the show, just mindlessly parroting today's approved memes.
