That Rudy Giulliani forgot 9/11 occurred shortly after one of President George W. Bush’s long summer vacations isn’t going to hurt America’s Mayor with the wingnuts. Amnesia, hypocrisy and the “big lie” are their stock in trade:
At least up until recently, the Bush defenders portrayed his record as “no attacks on the U.S. under Bush’s watch after 9-11.” But now, with the passage of more time, the defenders are growing bolder in their attempts to rewrite history. Now they want to completely erase the Bush administration’s responsibility for the failures leading up to 9-11, to say nothing of the other terrorist attacks carried out or attempted during that time, including the anthrax attacks and the 2002 attack at the El Al ticket counter at Los Angeles International Airport.
Forgetting 9-11 is bad enough. Rewriting its history for political gain is utterly shameful.
Correctamundo, Fonzie. Giuliani may be backpedaling now, but in a few days, look for Sean Hannity to start muddying the waters with a softball Rudy “interview” chock full of fresh lies and Clinton-smearing innuendo.
Right-wingers live in a parallel universe. Sarah Palin is still flapping her gums (with Hannity, of course) about Obama’s health care “death panels”.
Wingnuts know that the mainstream media has neither the time nor the inclination to clean up their innumerable piles of bullshit. The more they shovel, the more the truth can be rendered unknowable — and irrelevant.
Power is all.
