Molly's Folly's #1
Molly Ivins has written a column that contains some flat out untruths, as is her usual style. The title of the piece is "Thucydides had it right" and the whole thing can be read here: http://www.dfw.com/mld/dfw/news/opinion/9460281.htm . I am just going to point out one thing she got wrong.
Molly Sez : "I bring this up only because it doesn't look as if anyone else is gonna. John Kerry is running such a cautious campaign that George W. Bush can get away with falsely claiming that Kerry would have supported the war even if he had known then what he knows today."
Reuters Sez: "GRAND CANYON, Ariz. (Reuters) - Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry said on Monday he would have voted for the congressional resolution authorizing force against Iraq even if he had known then no weapons of mass destruction would be found. " Read the whole thing here: http://www.reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml
This is typical of Ivins writings. Just plain sloppy.
