I've said it before, so it can't be wrong

Karen Hughes, one of aWol's team of tough, loyal and stupid women, said last week that Saddam Hussein had poison-gassed "hundreds of thousands of his own people." It was pointed out to her that while some claim that Saddam's regime killed hundreds of thousands, only a few thousand of those appear to have been killed by poison gas. Hughes responded:
"It's something that our U.S. government has said a number of times in the past. It's information that was used very widely after his attack on the Kurds. I believe it was close to 300,000," Hughes said when questioned the first time. She added, "That's something I said every day in the course of the campaign. That's information that we talked about a great deal in America."
By saying "information" she means, of course, "lies."

Okay Karen. You're not just a one-off idiot. You're a repeat offender.
