After conceding that lying is part and parcel of being the White House Press Secretary (regardless of party), Keith just can't help but point out SnowJob's ridiculous answer at today's press conference about the whole "Mission Accomplished" banner fiasco.
Olberman: I You know that the mission accomplished banner was put up by members of the USS Abraham Lincoln, and the president, on that very speech, said just the opposite, didn’t he? Tony my God, you're just bald faced liar. Even Donald Rumsfeld talked the President out of saying " Mission Accomplished, but he couldn't get the banner pulled down in time
The White House has, on multiple occasions, tried to change the meaning of "Mission Accomplished" but no one in their right mind can possibly buy it. Mr. President: When 2,876 troops lose their lives after you land on an aircraft carrier in a picture-perfect photo-op and flatly declare "major combat operations in Iraq have ended," you no longer have any credibility. And no amount of spinning by your Press Secretary can change that.
