Real player sucks. it takes a minute to get over its self before it plays a 12 second audio clip. I bet its not even doing its hair. I bet it just enjoys making me wait.
2003-02-14 04:46:10 PM  
Huh, so he's as stupid as the president, but way more insane?
And here's a fun fact to start some flames: In 1983, Rumsfeld was a US Special Envoy under Reagan, and he gave Iraq chemical weapons in to help them in their war against Iran. But I'm sure those chemical weapons wouldn't be any good today, right? I mean, they must not have a very long shelf life...

The "Where is Bin Laden" is the best one. Wow that CIA is something else!
2003-02-14 04:47:34 PM  
it's nice to know he'll be around until GWB leaves office in 2008. don't even want to think how bad things would be with albright in that position. Amen.

Kermit doesn't like Rumsfeld either.
2003-02-14 04:47:52 PM  
Realplayer!?!!? SUCKS!

"We do have certain knowledge that he is either in Afghanistan, or some other country or dead"

Gee, thanks, Donald. That must be some dandy "knowledge" you have there. Or course everyone in the whole farking world could be either in Afghanistan, or some other country or dead.
2003-02-14 04:50:59 PM  
Jack Gladney, it's not a "fun fact" in the sense that everybody knows he was Ronald Reagan's middle-east envoy and that we sold weapons to Saddam during the Iran-Iraq war. There's also a picture of Rumsfeld shaking Hussein's hand which some person always posts here.
I'm glad we sold weapons to Iraq in the 80's; I'm glad we tried to make that war end in a stalemate. I'm also glad we helped the mujahadin drive the Soviets out of Afghanistan.
Rumsfeld is his own man, he doesn't have an Alistair Campbell to spin around all of his offhand remarks.
2003-02-14 04:51:02 PM  
Melting Afghans. Yummy, Rummy...
2003-02-14 04:56:33 PM  
Well! that makes sense! im glad we know more unknown unknowns that we didnt know about before we knew we knew that we didnt know them.

Wait. What was the middle one?

Which is worse, having an administration that produces such 'tards as these men who are leading the US to war, or following eejits who are leading the US to war? England? Care to comment? Who is the bigger fool, the fool, or the fool who follows him? CHRIST!

"The advantage to acting against the moon are, or course..."

The moon? The farkin' moon?!?

That's it, put Rummy away.
2003-02-14 04:56:47 PM  
D Rumsfeld: "Oh, yes sir. Bit me directly in the buttocks. They said it was a million-dollar wound, but the Army must keep that money, 'cause I still ain't seen a nickel of that million dollars. The only good thing about being wounded in the buttocks is the ice cream. They gave me all the ice cream I could eat."
2003-02-14 05:00:19 PM  
Rumsfield should be officially labeled a horse's ass.
2003-02-14 05:04:06 PM  
Crow on rummy all you want. After all your contibution and significance to the world pales in comparison.

blah blah blah
2003-02-14 05:07:39 PM  
Any one know what that thing is lodged up his ass? Maybe like
a really big crab?

Felina-g: "blah blah he's a national treasure..."
National embarassment is more like it. More that that, he's a
national liablity.
2003-02-14 05:08:11 PM  
God, this guy is an idiot. I'm going to call president Clinton right now and...hum? He's not what, anymore..?
Then who...? Oh.

Gore in '04! Gore in '04!

loser dems.
2003-02-14 05:10:55 PM  
France will never surrender now.
2003-02-14 05:12:39 PM  
don't even want to think how bad things would be with albright in that position. Amen.

Well, seeing as how she was never SecDef, it's not something we would have had to worry about.

2003-02-14 05:13:04 PM  
Say what you like about him, I can't think of anybody I'd rather have in that position at this point in time. He's a tough one!
2003-02-14 05:13:16 PM  
what they leave out are the retarded press questions he's being asked (the same question 10x) before these replies. I can see not liking Rumsfeld because he's an asshole, or you think he's crooked, but to play it off like he's stupid is silly...

but bash whoever you like...
2003-02-14 05:17:10 PM  
Why do you dems biatch about every little thing??? get the fark outa the country if you don't like it. Im sure not a whiney biatch when the dems are in office.
2003-02-14 05:18:25 PM  
EyesInMySoap We learned it from the Repubs back in the past. You remember, the time of elected presidents.
2003-02-14 05:19:44 PM  
Isn't my technology brilliant? I've worked on this tirelessly and I hope you like the product. Donald Rumsfield sounds quite clear, eh? Well, glad my creation made it to your beloved website.
2003-02-14 05:21:11 PM  
What a bonehead. An embarrasment for all Americans.
2003-02-14 05:22:32 PM  
Don't the British know how to make a Flash soundboard?
2003-02-14 05:28:55 PM  
EyesInMySoap Do you mean to pose the ever-so-popular query "Why do you hate America so much?"

By the way, from these sound bytes, dubya is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay ahead of this guy for saying stupid shiat. Half the time, Rumsfeld was laughing at what he was saying. That one about the "situation in Georgia" was hil-farking-larious, though.

Study abroad = 1 year. 2003 + 1 = 2004. 2004 = new president. Simple math shows studying abroad is a good choice.
2003-02-14 05:31:32 PM  
IMO, Rumsfeld is very intelegent. His intelect is leaps and bounds ahead of dubya's(really). Listen to him talk on C-span, he always know's what he;s talking about.
2003-02-14 05:31:47 PM  
This is stupid. DR is a guy who spends a lot of time in front of a microphone. I don't think anyone, DR included, could be expected to never say anything that sounds dumb, particularly when taken out of context, as almost all of these soundbites were.

This proves it, the press is going to shiat if they think this is a worthwhile endeavor, and the BBC is leading the way.
2003-02-14 05:33:19 PM  
"The statment I made is sound as a rock!"
"I didn't say 'Iraq!'"

2003-02-14 05:38:39 PM  
He went to my highschool!!!! WOOOOOO!!!!!

Okay, I'm a jackass.
2003-02-14 05:44:37 PM  
Rummy is the man - don't mess with him or he'll put yo ass in a sling.
2003-02-14 05:44:49 PM  
"Oh no - not Realplayer!"

Hey - at least the BBC, which easily is one of the best websites on the net, doesn't charge to view video and sound clips like many American news websites...

And talking about dumb Brits - wasn't it us who found the guy with the grenade, rather than the Americans where he started?
2003-02-14 05:50:32 PM  
"Do I Know?" sound bite has me crackin up.
bush's cabinet = circus.
2003-02-14 05:50:34 PM  
TheGrayCat said:
"Or course everyone in the whole farking world could be either in Afghanistan, or some other country or dead."

You're stupid. Rumsfeld says that they've narrowed it down to Bin Laden being 1) In Afghanistan, 2) In some other country, or 3) Dead. What he means is that through scientific deduction, the CIA now has information to believe that Bin Laden is NOT 1) In space, nor 2) In some parallel dimension. Again, next time do your homework, idiot. And stop being un-American.

"Why do you dems biatch about every little thing?"
Translation: Obey mein sheep!

I've got news for ya, I'm not in the army so Donald can kiss my ass.
2003-02-14 06:03:26 PM  
"Why do you dems biatch about every little thing?"

You know, to this day i still see republicans blaming stuff on clinton, everythign from the current economy, to terrorism, to the recession, to joblessness, EVERYTHING.

I disagree with your holier than thou stance mate.

When a democrat is in the white house, the republicans lament everythign they do. Now the shoe's on the other foot.
2003-02-14 06:05:27 PM  
Does this mean that "Yogi Berra for Secretary of War" can't be far away?
2003-02-14 06:08:26 PM  
I can't wait until the Dems get back into the white house in 2004.
Every time a repub complains I'm going to say, "you must really hate america".
2003-02-14 06:08:42 PM  
Argh! Not RealPlayer files!
2003-02-14 06:11:53 PM  
"I can't wait until the Dems get back into the white house in 2004.Every time a repub complains I'm going to say, "you must really hate america".

Nonononono they're trying to *SAVE* it from moral depravity, socialists, bolsheviks, tax and spenders, darkies, and homosexuals.

Theyre the bastion of pure moral christian up right fortitude and goodness. We should thank god theyre in power saving us from the evil doers and never say a word against. So get back in your lincoln navigator and dont forget to supersize.

damn i need to go drinking im overflowing with bile today.
