Who Was Holding The Plastic Turkey George?

Courtesy of a friend, the following is a quote from the King!!

George W. Bush, answering a question from ABC's Martha Raddatz about whether there's a civil war in Iraq said, "It's hard for me living in this beautiful White House, to give you a firsthand assessment. I haven't been there. You have. I haven't."

The president has visited Iraq at least twice since the war began, most recently in June 2006.

Who was holding the plastic turkey George? You know, the turkey that you were photographed holding while visiting the troops in Iraq? You know, that image that was plastered on every news channel a billion times a day for weeks? Are we to believe that it really wasn't George? Perhaps it was a real-life G.I. "George" rather than the plastic thing. Perhaps it was a body double. Stuntman? Or maybe, just maybe it was the King himself!!

Hell, who are we to question the King? I mean, if he says he hasn't been to Iraq then he hasn't been there. Right? Right!! Why would he lie? The King would never lie. The White House would never lie. Yeah right!! Just like he never said this:

In today’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Tony Snow tried to distance President Bush from his infamous “Mission Accomplished” speech, claiming that Bush said “just the opposite” of “Mission Accomplished”:

I think the public ought to just listen to what the president has to say. You know that the mission accomplished banner was put up by members of the USS Abraham Lincoln, and the president, on that very speech, said just the opposite, didn’t he?

For that May 1, 2003, Bush stood in front of a large banner that read, “Mission Accomplished.” In the opening of his speech, he declared, “Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed.” He called the “battle of Iraq” a “victory.” In his radio address shortly after the speech, he boasted, “I delivered good news to the men and women who fought in the cause of freedom: their mission is complete and major combat operations in Iraq have ended.”

I think apparently everyone who has ever heard this speech must be completely deaf, or like, against George. Never said "Mission Accomplished?" Not only are we all deaf, but we're all apparently dumb too!!

So let's see if I have this right. George has never been to Iraq. George never said "Mission Accomplished." George has never had a "stay the course" mentality. What else hasn't George said or done that he's really said or done?

Just remember people, if you see George holding a plastic turkey in Iraq, it isn't him!! He's never been to Iraq!! NEVER!! If anyone asks, he was in the "beautiful White House" the entire time.
