An easy target, to be sure, but Andrew Sullivan takes apart one of Andy Rooney's goofier political rants:

Rooney: My fellow Americans. One of the reasons we invaded Iraq was because I suggested Saddam Hussein had something to do with the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. No evidence that's so, I wish I hadn't said it.

When did president Bush actually say such a thing? The answer is never. The only thing that Bush has said about this alleged direct connection 9/11 between Saddam and is that it isn't true, so far as we know. So Rooney reverses what the president has said, then gets Bush to regret having said what he didn't say. He gets paid for this?

Apparently. I like 60 Minutes...always have. But I've also always turned it off after the last actual news story for as long as I've watched it, just so I wouldn't have to be subjected to Rooney.
