Animation of the vacation prez

An animated version of the president's fib-a-minute Feb. 2003 speech just days before the war started.

The rationale for rejecting Cindy Sheehan's "the president lied" ads by some TV executives in Idaho is that there's no proof that the president lied.

If you're like me, going back over Bush's old speeches, to show that this is a glib excuse at best, is about as pleasant as a sharp blow to the head. Let Scott Bateman's animated (and annotated) versions carry you through the pain and into relative sanity. He's doing an animation per day for one year. (Batemania via BOPNews)
