Baghdad Bob

We love the Iraqi Information Minister.  Here are a few of his choicest  morsels:

"They are not in Najaf. They are nowhere. They are on the moon. They are snakes in the desert..."

"Even those who live on another planet, if there are such people, would have condemned this action before it started."

"...they are nowhere (pause)...they are nowhere, really"

"Whenever we attack, they retreat. When we pound them with missiles and heavy artillery, they retreat even deeper. But when we stopped pounding, they pushed to the airport for propaganda purposes.’’

"They think we are retarded - they are retarded."

"Yesterday, we slaughtered them and we will continue to slaughter them."

"What they say about a breakthrough [in Najaf] is completely an illusion. They are sending their warplanes to fly very low in order to have vibrations on these sacred places . . . they are trying to crack the buildings by flying low over them."

"They are superpower of villains. They are superpower of Al Capone."

Yeah.  This guy is unbelievable.  He probably operates by the motto "It’s not a lie if you believe it".

Here’s a Letterman top ten from last week:

Top Ten Things Iraq’s Information Minister Has To Say About The War

10. "We’re pulling down the statues of Saddam to have them cleaned"

9. "Don’t believe that stuff you see on CNN...or NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox or MSNBC"

8. "If you ask me who the winner is, it depends on what your definition of ’is’ is"

7. "Iraqi television is off the air because we didn’t want you to have to sit through ’Becker’"

6. "Do you know of any job openings for a lying weasel?"

5. "Wolf Blitzer and I are engaged"

4. "Iraqis are in the streets celebrating Cher’s 40 fabulous years in show business"

3. "Incoming!"

2. "Saddam’s not dead -- he’s just out with a case of the shingles"

1. "War? What war?"
