We've heard a variety of reasons for going into Iraq from the Bush administration. This one takes the cake, though. On his Saturday radio show, host Cappy McGarr describes what he heard from Tom Daschle about a leadership breakfast with the President in the lead up to the invasion of Iraq. According to McGarr, at that breakfast, the president told Daschle - Minority Leader at the time - that "[w]e need to get Saddam Hussein...that Mother _______ tried to take out my Dad."
Of course, I'm not all that stunned by it. There's been mention of that before. But this particular characterization of it reminded me of a funny Dave Chappelle skit called "Black Bush." On top of being really, really funny, it appears to be pretty accurate. Check out the video at YouTube.
