Joe Isuzu Wilson

Ambassador Joe Wilson, the proven (according to the Senate Intelligence Committee) liar at the heart of the CIA's attack on the Bush administration has been all over TV for the past few days. You can hardly turn on any "news" program from 60 Minutes to Dateline to The Situation Room without seeing him fielding softball questions from fawning reporters.

And I keep watching in vain for the kind of subtitles that used to appear on the screen whenever David Leisure made his ad pitch as "Joe Isuzu." In a brilliant parody of the general public opinion of car sales tactics, he promoted outrageously exaggerated features, while every lie he told was corrected in the subtitles.

If the "news" media had any interest in the truth, they'd run similar disclaimers, correcting virtually every word Wilson speaks. Or, if the reporters were willing to actually do the jobs they're (over)paid to do, perhaps they could trouble themselves to ask him a few questions about why so many of the things he said turned out not to be true--and why he's still saying them.

UPDATE: For a complete fisking of Joe Isuzu's "Politics of Truth", see this piece by Max Boot today in the LA Times. (Hat tip Instapundit)

Heh, good analogy. Wasn't Joe Isuzu always saying "Trust me"?

Isuzu is a car brand that is well known for its usage. We should always think of this brand as one of the most trusted brands worldwide. The best car that I have ever tried and I suggest this to other people that needs a more affordable car.
