Perino and Beck: Stupid Things of the Week

Posted By on Fri, Nov 27, 2009 at 2:18 PM

We’ve got two Stupid Things of the Week in one for you today. Think of it as a complement to those two-for-one holiday sales deals you’ll be seeing a lot of this weekend.

First up is former Bush spokesperson Dana “I don’t know what the Cuban missile crisis was” Perino. On FoxNews the other day, Perino was talking with Sean Hannity, complaining that nobody is calling the Ft. Hood massacre a “terrorist attack.” She said she thinks it’s because the Obama people don’t want to look bad, because – ready? – “we did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term.” She’s referring, of course, to Pres. George W. “9/11 attack on my watch despite having been warned in advance” Bush. Yes, that’s right, no terrorist attacks during Bush’s term – except for the most deadly terrorist attack in American history. Is anyone else getting tired of seeing blithering idiots in positions that used to be filled by well-informed grown-ups?

And speaking of blithering, the Great Unstable One, Glenn Beck, was at it again. First of all, remember that Beck was one of the commentators who said Newsweek’s running-shorts cover photo of Sarah Palin was sexist (a sentiment we basically agreed with). After that incident, La Palin was joking around about potential running mates and said that Glenn Beck might be a good running mate for her. Right after Palin’s comment, Beck told listeners of his radio show that he wouldn’t take the number two job behind the former Alaska governor: "Beck-Palin, I’ll consider. But Palin-Beck — can you imagine, what an administration with the two of us would be like? . . . She’d be yapping or something, and I’d say, “I’m sorry, why am I hearing your voice? I’m not in the kitchen.” And yes, this is still the 21st century despite neanderthal humor like that.
