Monkey boy learns a new word

Dispelling as false any charges of prisoner abuse by Americans at Guantanamo Bay, monkey boy declared at a press conference today that all accusations can be narrowed down to people who haven't been tortured sufficiently to learn the truth "people who hate America."

As an aside, monkey boy gets a gold star sticker today for helping reporters learn a new word: disassemble (emphasis added):

THE PRESIDENT: Terry.

Q Thank you, sir. Mr. President, recently, Amnesty International said you have established "a new gulag" of prisons around the world, beyond the reach of the law and decency. I'd like your reaction to that, and also your assessment of how it came to this, that that is a view not just held by extremists and anti-Americans, but by groups that have allied themselves with the United States government in the past -- and what the strategic impact is that in many places of the world, the United States these days, under your leadership, is no longer seen as the good guy.

THE PRESIDENT: I'm aware of the Amnesty International report, and it's absurd. It's an absurd allegation. The United States is a country that is -- promotes freedom around the world. When there's accusations made about certain actions by our people, they're fully investigated in a transparent way. It's just an absurd allegation.

In terms of the detainees, we've had thousands of people detained. We've investigated every single complaint against the detainees. It seemed like to me they based some of their decisions on the word of -- and the allegations -- by people who were held in detention, people who hate America, people that had been trained in some instances to disassemble [sic] -- that means not tell the truth. And so it was an absurd report. It just is. And, you know -- yes, sir.

Junior gets an "A" for effort, but an "F" for results. He used the wrong word. He meant to say "dissemble."

Here's "dissemble" used in a new sentence:

President Bush lied dissembled when he presented to Congress, the American people, and the rest of the world, his evidence to justify a pre-emptive invasion of Iraq.

Is anyone in Congress saying the "I" word yet?

I think Conyers is, or he used it (I may be mistaken) in his recent interview with Raw Story. You probably saw Kerry's comments on the DS memo the other day and his statement that he was going to bring up the memo on Monday (World Forum has the comments, I think). But to get anywhere with impeachment, you'd have to get a number of Republicans to go along. You never know, though.

Yeah, Conyers already got the 100,000 signatures he said he wanted before he would deliver the letter asking Bush to respond to the DS memo. His web site is getting as many as 10 hits/minute.
