Neocon Heroes - Crony Division: Karen Hughes

Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs. Texas press coordinator for the Reagan-Bush campaign. Executive director of the Republican Party of Texas. Director of communications while I was governor of Texas. Counselor to the president. A member of the White House Iraq Group, the secretive task force charged with selling the U.S. public on the alleged dangers posed by Saddam Hussein. She planned the 2004 Republican National Convention and the late stages of the 2004 election.

And the money shot: "I've obviously been lied to a lot by campaign operatives, but the striking thing about the way she lied was she knew I knew she was lying, and she did it anyway. There is no word in English that captures that. It almost crosses over from bravado into mental illness."

Proudly dishonest, secretive, insane, cultish devotion to me - a Neocon hero.
