$300 Million Buys a Lot of Propaganda

Sure, we didn’t want to blow any money preventing or cleaning up after Katrina… but the federal government spares no expense when it comes to buying positive press to tell the Iraqis just how lucky they are to have us there.

News Flash! – most of them don’t want us there, most of us don’t want to be over there as well.

Based on this, I think the current score is Honest Media – 1, Ministry of Truth – 0, Bush – negative infinity (approximately).

Seriously though. The nation went rip shit when it discovered Bush bought support for the oh-so-successful “no child left behind” abomination… and that bribe was chump change compared to this. But it’s cool because they called it “psychological warfare operation” instead of propaganda, which makes everything all better.
