mid-morning time waster

last night, while listening to all things considered on the way back from my proctologist’s office, i heard a clip of president bush at a rally in florida* proclaim: “we do have a plan for victory in iraq. and part of that plan is keeping congress in republican control.”

today’s pressing question: was this statement more or less ridiculous than the following statements?

“the detroit tigers' biggest obstacle to a championship will be keeping a straight face. the tigers in three. (OK, make it four.)” – bob nightingale in his world series preview that was published in
usa today

“i did not have sexual relations with that woman, ms. lewinsky.” – president clinton publicly denying a particularly tawdry expression of executive privilege

“i never had a gay relationship with anybody, and i'm steady with my wife. i'm faithful to my wife.” - ted haggard on november 3, 2006

"i think they're in the last throes, if you will, of the insurgency." – dick cheney as quoted on june 20, 2005

* which charlie crist, florida’s republican candidate for governor, declined to attend lest bush’s “popularity” rub off on him.
