Meta-quote du jour

Condoleezza Rice, Bush's official idiot-savant, gave us a memorable quote last week concerning Israeli barbarism in Lebanon: "We are witnessing the birth pangs of a new Middle East." I wonder what would have been press reaction in America to some high official saying, as the World Trade Center toppled in flames, "We are witnessing the birth pangs of a new America?"

On a similar note, Billmon points out that Rush Limbaugh is sounding a lot like Osama bin Laden these days when it comes to the killing of civilians.
