POLITICS: Self-Parody Watch

I'm sure by now you've seen the "Turkeygate" story (see here for the essentials of the story, and see here for some perspective from someone who was there), but this post from . . . well, the P.S. just says it all about the depth of the obsessions of the president's critics, doesn't it?

Okay, this is a stupid 'scandal', and that DNC P.S. is just utterly ridiculous. Having said that, though, if the "show turkey" is a standard part of military meals, as the soldier quoted by Instapundit says, then why couldn't the White House just have said that? Instead, they give their critics more ammo with that nonsense about "conveying qualities that are real".

I assume that 90% of all PR is some form of deception. But don't tell me you're lying to me! Sheesh.

And to think - these are the same people who said Clinton's affair wasn't that big a deal. More reason why this liberal doesn't vote for Democrats.
