Are we at the punchline of this joke yet?

The Guardian is reporting that Hans Blix is going to tell the UN that inspectors have not yet found anything. (Big surprise there, eh?) Meanwhile (are you ready for another doozy of a surprise?), the U.S. is claiming to possess "very convincing evidence" to the contrary, which, of course, is far better than anything else they've thus far claimed to be either convincing or evidence. When asked by Helen Thomas why he didn't authorize giving this information to the UN so that a peaceful solution might be achieved, Bush replied, after being nudged by a nearby aid, thus ruining the memory, albeit foggy, of his last alcoholic bender cum quim fest before he found Jesus, "Make no mistake, I found it first."
