Americans are too Stupid to Notice?

This is priceless.

Recovered memory

On Monday, Joe Lockhart could not recall whether he discussed the forged documents with Bill Burkett: "Lockhart said he does not recall talking to Burkett about Bush's Guard records."

On Tuesday, Joe Lockhart suddenly recalled, with specificity, that he had not discussed the forged documents with Bill Burkett: "Lockhart said he discussed neither the National Guard nor the documents with Burkett."

On Wednesday ... we'll see.

The first link is dated since AP has updated the story to leave the reader the impression that Lockhart didn't play dumb on Monday -- unless you read down to Paragraph 13:

Lockhart said he was sure he had not talked to Burkett about the Guard documents.

Isn't this a significant difference not to note in Paragraph First or Second?

Wouldn't this be a story in and of itself?

Another fun frolic through RatherGate here as well as other more sobering topics.

Washington Times political writer/columnist Bill Gertz, who has very good sources, reports that "Al Qaeda seen planning for 'spectacular' attack." There is reason to worry.

Again, a delightful Blog.
