just another sunny tuesday at the fox news network.

So sorry to get all political on y’all, but this is absurd.

Remember, Dana Perino was the press secretary who admitted to knowing nothing about the Cuban Missile Crisis (“It had to do with Cuba and missiles, I’m pretty sure.”) back in 2007. Maybe she doesn’t know about September 11 either. Anything is possible. It seems to me that Perino probably misspoke and meant to say that there were no terrorist attacks on American soil during Mr. Bush’s second term. That would technically be true; although, her rationale would categorize the Virginia Tech shootings as a terrorist attack. Oh yeah, that happened during Mr. Bush’s presidency. Would they consider the VT massacre a terrorist attack if Seung-Hui Cho was Muslim? It’s probably best not to answer that question. There is no way to look at Perino’s statement, as well as Sean Hannity’s analysis, and see it as anything other than Fox News’ standard rousing of the illiterate rabble against Mr. Obama. Rabble rabble all you want, just spell your signs correctly—please.

Also, including a disclaimer about not wanting to politicize the Fort Hood incident doesn’t make what Perino said less political. And, in my opinion, there is no one to blame for this other than the man who pulled the trigger and possibly his immediate co-workers for ignoring the warning signs. When one serviceman of twenty years flips out and decides to go on a murderous rampage, well, that’s what we call an isolated incident, people. It’s not like Mr. Obama received a memo like someone else I know.
