As a timely addition to my first post today, I am reading an account of disgraced CBS newsreader, Katie Couric spouting off about her opinions of the war in Iraq. Before a studio audience while speaking at the National Press Club, faux journalist Katie says, "Everyone in this room would agree that people in this country were misled in terms of the rationale of this war," adding that it is "pretty much accepted" that the war in Iraq was a mistake. Quotes are courtesy of PJM Roundup at PajamasMedia.
The blogs are showing across the board rejection of Couric's remarks. Maybe everyone in her world has her opinions, actually I would take that bet, but her world's population doesn't speak of regular U.S. citizens. She left regular U.S. citizen world many moons ago.
There is even a blogger on Daily Kos that relates what a buffoon she's become. Mon Dieu!
Couric bad mouths the administration for 5 years, belittles those holding the highest of office in the administration, blah, blah, blah and then accepts an assignment of reporting from Iraq to try to salvage any hopes of decent ratings for her CBS Evening News show. Couric makes headlines with her come-to-Jesus moment when she says, on air, that progress is indeed being made and the military really isn't full of murdering, raping, knuckle dragging apes. Oh, my mistake. The last part of the previous sentence should be credited to the likes of Murtha, Kerry and Durbin.
So, safely back in her cocoon on the east coast of the U.S. of A., trying to re-establish her cred as the mouthpiece for the defeatists, there she goes.
Nicely done, Katie.
