Disinformation day roundup

Logo via Source Watch

Today is national disinformation day, so it appears that rumors of Bush prepping a historic third term are a bit premature.

The rumors about Condoleeza Rice and British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw are also not true, well at least not literally true. However, she really did say: "We do not tolerate either at home or abroad engagement in acts of torture. We also have no desire to be the world's jailer." And she really was forced to sit though a rendition of Give Peace a Chance at Liverpool's Philharmonic Concert Hall. According to The Scotsman, the impromptu rendition turned her escort Mr. Straw, "as red as the balloons carried by the protesters."

Meanwhile, the flying spaghetti monster makes its debut on Aljazeera.

I heard a clip on NPR about Condi's trip to Liverpool. The protestors were singing "we all live in a terrorist regime!" to the tune of the Beatles Yellow Submarine. It was kind of catchy.

Very funny. It almost seems like the visit was arranged by Monty Python. I may have to use that at the next protest.
