Teh Stupid, Still Burning with

the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns. Okay, we've all heard by now that this story is on the front page of the New York Times:

Last March, the federal government set up a Web site to make public a vast archive of Iraqi documents captured during the war. The Bush administration did so under pressure from Congressional Republicans who had said they hoped to “leverage the Internet” to find new evidence of the prewar dangers posed by Saddam Hussein.

Except the Administration brainiacs forgot that back in the '80s, Saddam Hussein was our good buddy, our gumbah, someone we had no problem selling arms to, along with "other information."

But in recent weeks, the site has posted some documents that weapons experts say are a danger themselves: detailed accounts of Iraq’s secret nuclear research before the 1991 Persian Gulf war. The documents, the experts say, constitute a basic guide to building an atom bomb.

Okay, that's a pretty high dosage of fucking stupid right there. But wait, there's more. The idiots in the right pinheadosphere seem to think that this vindicates President Bush's claim that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction . . . in 2002. If Saddam Hussein was working on a nuke before the 1991 Persian Gulf War, then he must have had one in the works by 2002. Despite all the evidence to the contrary.

In the right pinheadosphere, if A=B, and C=D, then A=D.
