A song in the key of deception

“A think tank did the counting.

The numbers still could rise.

Total what we were told before the war:

935 lies.”

So sings comedian, actor, writer, satirist, and “voice of C. Montgomery Burns” Harry Shearer on his newly released album Songs of the Bushmen.

The album’s first track, “935 Lies,” refers to the Center’s very own Iraq: The War Card investigation, which documented 935 false statements by the Bush administration in the lead-up to the Iraq war.

With the Center’s latest investigation, Perils of the New Pesticides, let’s hope Shearer is working on a new song about pyrethrins.

Listen to the song.
