“Freedom has a power all its own, requiring no propaganda to find recruits, no indoctrination to keep its believers in line.”

– Vice President Cheney, 4/15/04

“See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda.”

– President Bush, 5/24/05

We’d love to hear your submissions for most propagated Bush fiction. Here’s a few to get you started:

Bush attempts to convince us that despite the increasing violence in Iraq, we are “making progress.”

In selling his Social Security proposal that provides a guaranteed benefit cut for most Americans, Bush claims there’s a “crisis” that requires action immediately.

Implying he can do nothing to address rising gas prices, Bush wishes he had a “magic wand” to lower prices at the pump.

Any more?
