The Lie That Would Not Die
Posted by: MichaelW on Wednesday, January 28, 2009

Ah, the good ol' days of BDS. Remember that Thanksgiving when Pres. Bush made a surprise visit to the troops in Iraq? The one immortalized forever by the picture of him seeming to offer a turkey platter to some soldiers standing in the chow line?



It was also the one where Bush was accused of cynically using a fake turkey for a photo-op in order to appear much more concerned about the troops than he actually was. Indeed, check out the caption to the picture above:
Bush has also had his share of turkey while in office, shown above bringing a turkey to troops in Baghdad, Iraq. However, the turkey was only for the photo op - it wasn't real.

It's part of a pictorial essay by the New York Daily News titled "George W. Bush: The lamest duck ever?"

Since he's no longer President, the media taking shots at Bush is sort of uncouth, but also sort of uninteresting. The man's not even yesterday's news for crying out loud.

What's really bothersome, however, is that the lie continues unabated that Bush was voguing with a fake turkey. It's been well documented for quite awhile now what actually happened, but the media can't seem to ever catch up to the truth. I guess that's why they're still so concerned with news from several years ago.

Oh well, plus ça (hope and) change, plus ça meme chose.
