It's Kind Of Hard To Know How To Be Of Help

If you're a seeker of truth, I've got one for you:
"Seven years ago today, in a speech on the Iraq war, Sen. Ted Kennedy fired the first shot in an all-out assault on President George W. Bush's integrity. 'All the evidence points to the conclusion,' Kennedy said, that the Bush administration 'put a spin on the intelligence and a spin on the truth.' Later that day Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle told reporters Mr. Bush needed 'to be forthcoming' about the absence of weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

Thus began a shameful episode in our political life whose poisonous fruits are still with us.

The next morning, Democratic presidential candidates John Kerry and John Edwards joined in. Sen. Kerry said, 'It is time for a president who will face the truth and tell the truth.' Mr. Edwards chimed in, 'The administration has a problem with the truth.'

The battering would continue, and it was a monument to hypocrisy and cynicism. All these Democrats had said, like Mr. Bush did, that Saddam Hussein possessed WMD. Of the 110 House and Senate Democrats who voted in October 2002 to authorize the use of force against his regime, 67 said in congressional debate that Saddam had these weapons. This didn't keep Democrats from later alleging something they knew was false—that the president had lied America into war."
Ha-ha, yea - oops - sorry: that's probably too much truth for a seeker's delicate sensibilities. I'll try to keep it as subtle as humanly possible from here on out.

Maybe, as a seeker and (of course it follows) a lover of France, this truth will appeal to you more? I don't know. You're going to have to tell me exactly what kind of truth you're into.

I mean, unlike others, I've never been a seeker in my life.
