Condi, Condi, Condi. Didn't Rumsfeld Teach You to Lie Better?

Condi Rice testified to the Senate budget committee on the state of Iraq, that hey, we're winning the war, and Iraqi daily life is doing better, even though she admitted that crude oil & electricity levels were still below pre-war levels. She also told the Senators that "many more Iraqis" were getting potable water and sewage services these days.

Unfortuately for Condi, someone on Senator Kent Conrad of ND's staff had apparently had read the reports because he got her to admit that when she said "many more Iraqis" were getting those services, she actually meant to say that "fewer Iraqis" were getting them.

Many more / fewer -- almost the same thing. I can see how she'd get the confused. After all these years down the rabbit hole of the Bush administration where up is down and down is up, it probably made sense to her.

Either that or they just lie to us as a jerk reaction to the answer of any question.

Condi has become ensnared by the administration's doublespeak... the oppostite of everything they say is true...
