Do y'all think Cal's bad comb-over is a sign of a false prophet?

Shannon’s comment pretty much sums this post up, it’s about as important as a comb over.

They WANTED to believe, they were told they SHOULD believe, they bought it hoook line and sinker.
Brad, this link belongs on the front page:
The forged "Niger Yellow Cake Memo" origin is alleged by a 27 year CIA analyst to lead right to the office of the Vice president.
A Trillion dollar war, almost a million Iraqi deaths, and the war on terror just a glimmer in the distant past now....This scumbag needs to be impeached now, and then handed over to the French so THEY can prosecute him, and then....On the the Hague for his warcrimes trial.

Tom Tomorrow has never been a yeasayer, (not a real word), but has DEFINITELY helped me get through this seven year acid trip.
The pundits, (learned persons), manifest destiny is fortunately, unemployment.

Brad, absolutely wonderful post.
Why not go back in this blog's history and show that while these delusional pundits were selling these lies, bloggers were "spot on", as the brits say, and were not asleep at the wheel (the majority of dems in the House voted against it too).
We saw it then for what it was (a republican war), we projected what it was going to become (republican propaganda storm), and we now smell it for "all that it can be" (torturing a small nation with big oil out of existence).
The only way to handle self delusion is more self delusion. The RNC cannot see their own mistakes ... especially the greatest foreign policy mistakes of all time ... and, by all appearances, are doomed to remain deluded.
Denial is one of the viruses that infects with delusion ... and keeps it spreading ... and keeps it spreading ... and keeps it spreading ... and keeps it spreading ...
Praise the booty, pass the unarmored humvees, and hide the coffins until after the election.

Just in case any fundies might read this thread, here is a quote, from what you call The Good Book.
The quote indicates that sometimes the bad prophets outnumber the good prophets:
Then said Elijah to the people, I even I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal's prophet's are four hundred and fifty men.
(I Ki 18:22). The thrust of the story is that the weight of numbers doesn't always carry the entire story or even the accurate story.
And, perhaps, that drifting from the facts can lead to a mob psychology posing as a sane consensus. So here is one more for ya:
You shall not follow a multitude to do evil. Neither shall you speak in a cause in order to follow many in order to wrest judgment.
(Exod 23:2). If you are going to have a faith, make sure it is not blind faith. Resisting blind faith is "hard work", but it is the essence of the true prophets of the 4th estate.
Read the words of Senator Byrd, on the floor of the US Senate, as he opposed the Iraq war resolution in 2003.
Senator Byrd, the elderly and physically frail statesman was one of those with vision. A vision that could remember the lessons of history, and see thru the fog of the neoCon madness that was moving in to cover the truth in our nation's capitol.
