We’ll Have What She’s Having
We need to watch Fox more often. Last night, Sean Hannity lit a huge spliff and passed it around the studio. By the time it reached Dana Perino it was a roaring bonfire, and she could barely keep her hands on the table while she riffed on Fort Hood:
PERINO: And we had a terrorist attack on our country. And we should call it what it is. Because we need to face up to it so that we can prevent it from happening again.
HANNITY: I agree with you. And why won’t they say what you just so simply said?
PERINO: They want to do all of their investigations. I don’t know. All of the thinking that goes into it. But we did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term. I hope they’re not looking at this politically. I do think we ought it to the American people to call it what it is.
Three hits later, she was off on this wild theory about how reality’s just a social construct, dude, and if we all just believe that George W. Bush kept us safe, well, then it must be true.
