Making the Grade

For those of you who know me, I'm having a great time in Amaliada. For those of you who don't, Amaliada is the small town in Greece my husband and I retired to last year. So I use the Internet in general and weblogs specifically to stay in touch with my beloved Washington state.

So it was great to see a Seattle icon, PI columnist, Joel Connelly, make the blogsphere in a big way. What did Joel do? The same thing that it seems only bloggers have been able to do. Fact check and compare the writings and speeches of this current administration and highlight their lying.

"The words of our future vice president -- defending the decision to end Gulf War I without occupying Iraq -- eerily foretell today's morass. Here is what Cheney said in '92" I'll let you go to the source and read it in full: http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/connelly/192828_joel29.html

Several sites I regularly read in the first two days after Joel's column read, linked to him or just quoted him. Needless to say, the Democratic campaign blogs were all over this as well.

.
I mean, Google has six pages of hits on this. Joel definitely made the grade!
