Could it be the sun?
In the heat of summer, one's mind can play tricks. I find myself asking, "Did I hear/read that or am I suffering heat stroke"? Example. Did President Bush meet the press with Koizumi, on the heels of the Supreme Court's Gitmo ruling, and say, "Don't be cruel"? (He might have finished it with "cruel and unusual" to hint that he is familiar with the 8th Amendment.) But I ran the tape, and he did say that.
Did the Japanese Prime Minister really sing "Can't Help Falling in Love With You"? And, standing next to the man who rushed into Iraq based on lies, faulty intelligence from "Curveball" and deceit, did the P.M. sing "Fools Rush In"?
Finally, did a leading Vatican official signal the beginning of the Catholic Church's campaign to elect a Republican president in 2008, by suggesting that those involved in stem cell research should be excommunicated? Nah, the Vatican must me suffering from heat stroke.
I think I need a cold drink.
