Would somebody edumacate me?

This is from the transcript of the president in Idaho today:

Q ... I'll ask you about the Iraqi constitution. You said you're confident that it will honor the rights of women.


Q If it's rooted in Islam, as it seems it will be, is that still -- is there still the possibility of honoring the rights of women?

THE PRESIDENT: I talked to Condi, and there is not -- as I understand it, the way the constitution is written is that women have got rights, inherent rights recognized in the constitution, and that the constitution talks about not "the religion," but "a religion." Twenty-five percent of the assembly is going to be women, which is a -- is embedded in the constitution.

What the hell did he just say above? He never completed a real sentence. Is he inferring that somehow women will have rights? How can women have rights if... oh I don't get it.


Bob Geiger edumacated me regarding bush's unpopularity and tells why Hardball's beautiful substitute for Chris Matthews is rather uniformed... ok, very uniformed. And yes, anti-war people or pro-peace people should not be viewed as extremists. It seems that the majority of Americans are not happy with bush's war. I would say that war mongers should be classified as extremists. Killing people should be viewed as an extreme measure to make a point. Those who orchestrated 9/11 were extremists, whoever they may be.
