Mirror, mirror on the wall

Who's the lyingest of them all?

"There is an Iranian history of obfuscation and, indeed, lying to the IAEA," she said, referring to the International Atomic Energy Agency.

"There is a history of Iran not answering important questions about what is going on and there is Iran pursuing nuclear technologies that can lead to nuclear weapons-grade material," Rice told reporters aboard her plane as she headed to Moscow.
We certainly have the moral high ground here, with our complete lack of verbal prestidigitation and physical legerdemain throughout the long and storied history of our beloved shining city on a hill, a beacon to all the downtrodden of the world, notably those swarthy types who live on top of our oil most disadvantaged by the cruel vagaries of fate whose strings are controlled by the dark puppetmaster of the infernal depths, Satan.

Oh, how that beaming sun of democracy and freedom has shone brightest within the last six glorious years, the most spectacular and heartwarming show of trust and love towards our brothers and sisters across the seas and throughout all of the Lord's domain since the dawn of time, Amen.

Which is precisely why, lying or not, Iran would probably like some fucking nukes. Would you trust us? It's too bad they'd pose such a threat as to dwarf the measly two or three ICBMs pointed at us for about 40 years, making us all wet our pants and hide under Bill Kristol's bed. Not sure if there's enough room for 300 million, but by gosh, we'll sure try!

That's pretty ironic, our government accusing Iran (or anybody else) of lying. Our lying sack of shit president and his administration tell more lies than anyone.

"Everyone should get your daily allowances of vitamins and ironys, that's a metal, like lead, heh, heh."

How I fucking hate these fuckers. The whole world is run by children. Even those Turkish fucks. "We did not slaughter Armenians! We're going home! Hmph!"

The other day I read something about Japan erasing from their history books the forced suicides on Okinawa during the closing days of WW2. People thought nationalism was bad in the 19th century? Hah!

First, Rice is not to be respected since she obviously has no command of the possessive gerund.

Second, killing brown people is the new American hobby -- I mean, responsibility. From the 17th through 19th centuries it was reds and the blacks. In the 20th century, it was the Reds with some Yellow Peril thrown in (which would make for a really deep orange).

Now it's the browns, which for freepers conveniently includes Mexicans, South Americans, and most Muslims.

We seem to be working our way through some color chart.

I hadn't thought of looking at it that way, but you may be on to something. And since they're running out of degrees of melanin, they're going to have to shift from the actual to the abstract. Greens? Take that environmentalist wackos, or those with too much chlorine in their backyard pool! Blues? Well, that's self evident!
