••Wanted: an elected president to restore dignity back to the White House••
Remember just a few days ago, when White House Press Secretary Ari Fleisher and every other BushBot attack dog got all worked up with zeal and immediately jumped on chief U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix and accused him of not mentioning a drone in his oral presentation to the Security Council last Friday? Smelling fresh blood and a chance to make Mr. Blix and his report irrelevant, both Mr. Fleisher and Colin Powell went further and claimed the drone was "capable of dispensing biological and chemical weapons".
Well, guess what?
Fresh off the wire service comes a piece of copy, that if it weren't for the fact that we're talking serious times here, i would swear was the result of some hilarious satirical creation by the comic writers from either Mad TV or Saturday Night Live:
"The remotely piloted aircraft that the United States has warned could spread chemical weapons appears to be made of balsa wood and duct tape, with two small propellors attached to what look like the engines of a weed whacker."
