Beyond chutzpah, first on your right when you get to comedy

The new Van Gogh (see post below) came up with this corker yesterday.

That’s why mainstream media pays those big bucks for fact checkers.
This coming from the guy who's 'media' company didn't even bother to check if its original name was copyrighted. And then had the chutzpah to tell 'untruths' about who owned it. All at a cost of $7 million dollars of some schmucks money.

What was he responding to I hear you ask? It was the claim that the Iraq war was grinding into it's fourth year.

I missed it on first read, but Confederate Yankee points out that the war in Iraq is now “grinding” into its third year, not its fourth.
Actually it's grinding into its fourth year Charles. It started in March 2003.

Not only that, but Charles can't even count.

"I missed it on first read, but Confederate Yankee points out that the war in Iraq is now “grinding” into its third year, not its fourth."

Iraq was attacked in March 2003. So unless there's a sudden cessation of hostilities within the next few days, the third anniversary of the invasion will indeed mark the beginning of the fourth year.

At least one lizard has had the temerity to mention this. Now Charles has to decide: leave the error up, and risk being thought a fool; or issue a correction, and remove all doubt.
