Skippy of the Day: Donald Rumsfeld

Much like my full-length movie reviews, "Skippy" doesn't make many appearances around Acrentropy any more. However, given Rumsfeld's recent run in with somebody who actually knows what he's talking about, I though it appropriate to bring it back:

QUESTION: Well we're talking about lies and your allegation there was bulletproof evidence of ties between al Qaeda and Iraq.

RUMSFELD: Zarqawi was in Baghdad during the prewar period. That is a fact.

QUESTION: Zarqawi? He was in the north of Iraq in a place where Saddam Hussein had no rule. That's also ...

RUMSFELD: He was also in Baghdad.

QUESTION: Yes, when he needed to go to the hospital. Come on, these people aren't idiots. They know the story.

Mr. Rumsfeld, I lived in Tallahassee for most of 2001. That doesn't mean I ever had brunch with Jeb.
