If you are continually wrong, we will stop listening to you

Crooks and Liars : Bill Maher Smacks Around Some NeoCons: "Maher: And finally, new rule in two parts: (A) You can't call yourself a think tank if all your ideas are stupid; and (B) If you're someone from one of these think tanks that dreamed up the Iraq War and who predicted that we'd be greeted as liberators, and that we wouldn't need a lot of troops, and that Iraqi oil would pay for the war, that the WMD's would be found, that the looting wasn't problematic, that the mission was accomplished, that the insurgency was in its last throes, that things would get better after the people voted, after the government was formed, after we got Saddam, after we got his kids, after we got Zarqawi, and that whole bloody mess wouldn't turn into a civil war, you have to stop making predictions."
This is the warning to evangelicals who keep telling me that Bush is some kind of "Godly man." At a point, you lose credibility on any kind of moral issue.
