USDA: Iraq is Grade-A Beef

The USDA on Iraq: Everything’s Coming Up Rosy

Career appointees at the Department of Agriculture were stunned last week to receive e-mailed instructions that include Bush administration “talking points” — saying things such as “President Bush has a clear strategy for victory in Iraq” — in every speech they give for the department.

Another attachment “contains specific examples of GWOT messages within agriculture speeches. Please use these message points as often as possible and send Harry Phillips , USDA’s director of speechwriting, a weekly email summarizing the event, date and location of each speech incorporating the attached language. Your responses will be included in a weekly account sent to the White House.”

It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so scary at the same time. It’s propoganda at it’s finest… or most absurd. Can’t decide which.
