On Rachel Maddow's MSNBC show last night, Ridge continued to contradict himself. "At no time, at no time, at no time did politics enter, in my judgment, anybody's equation," Ridge said.
Ridge went on to say that "politics was not involved" and that "I was not pressured."
Maddow then read to Ridge directly from his book's jacket: "'He recounts episodes such as the pressure that the DHS received to raise the security alert on the eve of of the '04 presidential election.' That's wrong?"
"Those aren't my words," Ridge said. "Read the book." But not the book's jacket. That stuff just can't be trusted.
Someone must have a gun pointed at his pet goldfish or something.
