CalPundit gives us a jaw-dropper. Here's the President talking to the media yesterday:
The larger point is, and the fundamental question is, did Saddam Hussein have a weapons program? And the answer is, absolutely. And we gave him a chance to allow the inspectors in, and he wouldn't let them in. And, therefore, after a reasonable request, we decided to remove him from power, along with other nations, so as to make sure he was not a threat to the United States and our friends and allies in the region.

Does he think that's true? Does he think we think it's true? I know we Americans are accused of having short attentions spans but the whole "Let the Inspectors do their job" thing was rather a big deal and I don't recall that the protesters were chanting at Saddam. Is it nitpicking to wish your president didn't live in Bizzaro World? Take that italicized phrase and put it in Steve Corell's mouth and you have insta-Daily Show. Somehow it isn't so funny when it's real...
