Who Do You Believe?

How do you score these statements for credibility and truthfulness?

1. Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei:
"Congressional elections a victory for Iran. "

2. Democratic congressional leaders: "......they had no plans for a quick withdrawal of U.S. forces. "

3. Former British Ministry of Defense Chief: "Aliens could attack at any time"

4. California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger: "..... the Democratic victories were healthy for U.S. politics."

5. Howard Dean: "We Won't Impeach Bush"

I can believe the first comment,

1. Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: "Congressional elections a victory for Iran. "

The rest? Not a lot of credibility ot truthfulness there:

2. Democratic congressional leaders: "......they had no plans for a quick withdrawal of U.S. forces. "

3. Former British Ministry of Defense Chief: "Aliens could attack at any time"

4. California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger: "..... the Democratic victories were healthy for U.S. politics."

5. Howard Dean: "We Won't Impeach Bush"

Special note to number 5:

If Bush teams up with the Democratic Congress and ushers in a new amnesty plan while continuing to refuse to do his job to secure the border, Conservatives will join Howard Dean in the impeachment effort!

Just sayin'.

1) I have no doubts he said it and believes it; whether or not it'll be accurate is impossible to state with certainty, but it's not unlikely.

2) Credible, probably truthful. They personally have no plans for a quick withdrawal, I'm sure. They might even be smart enough to realize that any withdrawal will hurt them more than the Nutroots Base thinks.

3) Huh.

4) I'll buy it. Note that he didn't say that Democrat victories will lead to good policies. But busting the myth of "Evil Diebold Vote Stealing Meanies" alone is a big win, as is slapping the GOP out of its stupid complacency. For US politics overall, Schwarzenegger is probably right.

5) Well. Heh. If "won't impeach" means "won't successfully impeach", then he's definitely truthful. Otherwise, I'm less sure, but it could easily be that the Democrat leadership has done the math and the polling and realizes it's a losing proposition nationwide.

#1 is accurate.

#3 is more probable than the rest.
