Stupid or Lazy?
Kat, writing on her blog The Middle Ground, asks whether the Democrats who have joined the "Bush Lied" bandwagon were being stupid or lazy when they viewed pre-war intelligence:
Maybe they were so stupid that, not only could the President give them a speech and a presentation that would convince them to go to war without asking any questions. Maybe they were also too lazy to read intelligence briefings, ask for and get intelligence information or briefings, talk to the members of the intelligence committees to get their input.
Many prominent Democrats have now taken to claiming that they were "duped" by the Bush administration, that either the intelligence was manipulated or they didn't receive all of it. As Kat says, the only logical conclusion one can reach from this is that the Democrats were either stupid or lazy.
The other conclusion is that they are just liars seeking political advantage. But of course, that would be to question their motives, and we all know that liberals are as pure as the wind driven snow.
So let's take a little poll here; do you think that Democrats were stupid or lazy?

Personally, I think they are pretending they weren't there at all. For them it's plausible deniability. Doesn't matter that they backed Clinton on most of the same intelligence.
