A Fun Political Trivia Game

Okay, folks. You know by now I plan to write about the idiot in the White House till he's gone. So let me make it fun for you.
It's time to play...


1. "That was a war based on lies and misinterpretation from London and from Washington, claiming falsely that Saddam Hussein was responsible for [the] 9/11 attacks, claiming falsely that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction."
A. Former Intelligence Advisor Richard Clarke
B. Jimmy Carter
C. John Kerry

2. "The United States is shouldering a greater debt burden today than it did during the Great Depression. "The total amount owed “by consumers, businesses, governments and financial institutions“ totaled $34.4 trillion at the end of 2003, according to the Federal Reserve. The economy produced $11.3 trillion of output. That makes the nation's debt triple its gross domestic product. In 1933, debt was about 2 1/2 times the GDP."
A. Arianna Huffington
B. A study by the Gabelli Mathers Mutual Fund
B. Bill Maher, in his HBO show, "Real Time"

3. "This is historic times....whether they be Christian, Jew, or Muslim, or Hindu, people have heard the universal call to love a neighbor just like they'd like to be called themselves."
A. The Rev. Billy Graham
B. The Rev. Fred Phelps
C. George W. Bush

4. "I want to thank members of the administration who are here who will be involved in the implementation of some of the initiatives outlined to the United States Congress. The Secretary of Education is here, Rod Paige, behind me. John Ashcroft is here... And, most importantly, Alma Powell, secretary of Colin Powell, is with us."
A. Dick Cheney
B. Condaleezza Rice
3. George W. Bush

5. "If a White House insider tells the truth about the Bush administration, they get screwed. When Gen. Eric Shinseki told Congress that postwar Iraq would require a large occupation force, his military career came to an abrupt halt. When Ambassador Joseph Wilson said the 2003 State of the Union speech contained bogus information about Iraq trying to buy yellow cake uranium from Niger, someone in the White House destroyed his wife's career (and committed treason) by revealing that she was a C.I.A. operative.
Former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill questioned the wisdom of the Bush tax cuts to the rich and got canned. When he squealed to the media, he was branded a loser with a grudge.
Richard Foster, the Medicare system's chief actuary, was threatened with dismissal if he revealed to Congress the true, much higher cost of the administration's prescription drug plan.
Richard Clarke, George Bush's former counterterrorism czar and the author of the just-published "Against All Enemies" is currently being tarred and feathered by the Bush clan as a disgruntled ex employee."
A. Molly Ivins
B. Bill Maher
C. Karen Zipdrive
