GWB Touts His Human Rights Record

President George W. Bush: "No President has ever done more for human rights than I have."

From Lloyd Grove's column today. As Grove points out, the presidents who freed slaves, defeated Hitler, or even brought down the Berlin Wall might beg to differ.

This is yet another example of the Bush administration's rejection of the very concept of truth. There was another one earlier today: they announced they're going after former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill over the document that turned up on 60 Minutes the other night ("Plan for post-Saddam Iraq"). Asked whether the probe might seem vindictive, a spokeperson said, "We don't see it that way." Maybe they'll announce whether his wife was a CIA agent, too.
