"Vacation," My Foot -- Dan Radosh Is Working for Bush Again

Via Laura Rozen (oh, how the Confidence Man loves that blogspeak formulation -- it makes it sound as if Laura IM'ed me personally to impart this info), the Confidence Man reads a WaPo article ("U.S. Deploys Slide Show to Press Case Against Iran") describing yet another piece of Bushist PowerPoint agitprop making the diplomatic rounds:

"With an hour-long slide show that blends satellite imagery with disquieting assumptions about Iran's nuclear energy program, Bush administration officials have been trying to convince allies that Tehran is on a fast track toward nuclear weapons."

This development comes suspiciously close on the heels of noted PowerPoint auteur Dan Radosh's recent "vacation."

The Confidence Man has noted previously the alarming coincidence of Radosh's expertise with that of the Bush Administration. And we are still convinced that Karl Rove has noted satirical dystopist Ed Neumeier locked in a White House sub-basement.

... we must realize that Gore is targeting another run in '08.
