Maureen Dowd on Iraq’s “WMD-related program activities”

Hilarious. I am so glad that at least some journalists have picked up on this redefinition of the very concept of drivel:

For proof of how intemperate their policy has been, compare this year’s State of the Union with last year’s. Last year it was all about Iraq’s frightening weapons. This year the only reference was to “dozens of weapons of mass destruction-related program activities and significant amounts of equipment that Iraq concealed from the United Nations.”

Would Americans have supported a war to go get “program activities?” What is a program activity? Where is the White House speechwriters’ ombudsman?

The rest of the column is worth reading for her merciless description of Howard Dean’s losing his sanity after the speech. She is such a bitch, but she can be damn funny.
