Kristof, I guess he tries

You know Nick, if you want to come up with a lie that Bush has told, could you at least try to come up with one that isn't so damn trivial.

Atrios, for example, has repeatedly discussed Bush's lie about claiming to continue to fly Airplanes with his National Guard outfit well after the fact of his departure in the same biography you are discussing.

That would not only be a lie, it would be still a petty lie and have the advantage of being more mendacious. And it's one that not all that many have heard about too.

And, of course, there are the lies that led directly to deaths, thousands of 'em.

But no, let's talk about stuffed animals instead.

Why don't you and Richard Cohen get a time-share together and let real progressives write editorials?
