The Talking Points Memo

John Kerry's bill regarding withdrawing from Iraq by year's end is about to come up for a vote.

Not that we'll see anything surprising out of the Republicans on this, but John Boenher's memo spelling out the talking points for any debate in the House has been leaked. As spectacularly uncreative as the Republicans tend to be when working from a set of talking points, it will be interesting to see just how many of these quotes end up verbatim on the Sunday morning talk shows and the floor of the House.

Confidential Messaging Memo

It would be interesting to see the memo that they'll brief Dubya with.

Talking points:

  • Remember 9/11?
  • You're the Decider, Mr. President.
  • "There is no presence of Iraqi insurgents in Baghdad" (Also known as the Baghdad Bob/ Baghdad Bush defense).
  • Say the WMD were found. The 29% that still back you don't know any better.
  • Remember 9/11?
