Former Cheerleader Expresses “Thoughts”

In a surprisingly candid moment, Katie Couric revealed she’s not super crazy about the war in Iraq:
Speaking at the National Press Club Tuesday evening, CBS “Evening News” anchor Katie Couric pulled back the curtain on her personal views of both the war in Iraq and former “Evening News” anchor Dan Rather.
Ok, get ready for some curtain pullin’.
“The whole culture of wearing flags on our lapel and saying ‘we’ when referring to the United States and, even the ‘shock and awe’ of the initial stages, it was just too jubilant and just a little uncomfortable. And I remember feeling, when I was anchoring the ‘Today’ show, this inevitable march towards war and kind of feeling like, ‘Will anybody put the brakes on this?’ And is this really being properly challenged by the right people? And I think, at the time, anyone who questioned the administration was considered unpatriotic and it was a very difficult position to be in.”
BAM! Curtain pulled bitch! You know, she showed so much bravery remaining perky in the face of all that awful “patriotism” that was rammed down her throat. Perky is more than just a word, it’s a way of life. And Katie lives perky baby.
