This doesn’t have to be the big get-even

Oh MAN do I love watching this (courtesy of Tom Tomorrow and MoveOn.org):

Rumsfeld gets caught in his own web.

Go watch it, then come back here for my commentary, featured below:

Do you know how long I’ve been waiting for that smarmy son of a bitch to get his comeuppance? But more importantly: do you know how long those journalists must have been waiting for a chance like this? They must have gotten so sick of hearing that assclown say, in his special condescending way, “I just don’t understand where you media types got the idea that I said blah blah blah…” Why else would they have those two quotes right there, waiting to trip him up? I like to think that, after Rumsfeld hemmed and hawed his way out of the room, those interviewers were giving each other high-fives in the post-interview locker room, congratulating each other on nailing that punk. These guys won’t pay for a meal for weeks, the journalistic community is going to be so happy with them. And so am I.

  1. Yeah, it’s great, but… why is it that we have to follow a link on your blog, or hear about it from moveon, to see it at all? Because people don’t care. This should be all over the news – Rumsfeld caught red-handed – but it’s not. I commend those guys for having quotes ready and for doing a great job of being professional and probing at the same time. But it depresses me that it won’t matter.

  2. netinerary. this is why tom and i are friends. we both do that, and sometimes its really funny and fitting, and sometimes people are like… (long deliberate pause)…”oh.”

    i think it deserves a name. you know, spoonerisms have a name, as do puns an d various other wordplays…. what shall we call ours?
