W's Iraq video conference phonier than first thought

I'm under the impression that no one really saw Bush's stage-managed show with soldiers in Iraq. Lucky for him. It's common knowledge on the blogosphere that the White House had the grave misfortune to have their coaching session captured on film. And that isn't even the worst of it.

It's now come to light that Bush even had a ringer-- a "Gannon," if you will-- right there with the soldiers. The Village Voice has the story.


I'm glad Lombardo is safe, and I mean her no harm, and it's nothing personal, but I don't believe a fucking word she says, because her job is to make the Bush regime look good. So what great insights did she have? Here's a portion of her conversation with the POTUS — who moronically stepped on her lines and couldn't even get her rank straight.
