Did you just call me gullible?

No... In fact, he called Americans a "visceral" people. However, it sure did have that aftertaste of "suckers!" I'm referring to Orrin Hatch's comment tonight on Hardball about the fact that 42% of registered voters believe that Saddam Hussein had a direct role in the attacks on September 11. In response, Hatch replied that he's not bothered that this is the case, because [and this is a semi-direct quote from just having seen it] "Americans are a visceral people. They understand that a connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda exists even though no direct relation has been proven." I think he just called us "suckers" and that, my friends, is the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
