Saw this developing last night on various blogosphere sites. It would appear that somebody in Iraq has been encouraging soldiers stationed there to write glowing reports to thier local newspapers for the Folks Back Home. How things are just getting so peachy-dandy so fast, local people strewing roses in thier paths and offering thier daughters, just a general outpouring of love of the US.
So that the point would not be lost, the soldiers were supplied with thier sincere missives in advance, only needing signatures before being sped off to thier hometown papers.
But some skeptical soul, no doubt lacking the sincere patriotism our Fearless Misleader embodies, noticed that the letters are identical!
gives one example of such to the Olympian of Washington state.
I am stunned. Not by the mendacity, nor the underhanded attempt to curry favor Back Home. Nor even the attempt to exploit the soldiers in harms way for political gain. But by the sheer stupidity of the effort.
Can’t these people even lie plausibly anymore?
