forgotten?

Steve Benen: …. Last night, Fox News’ Eric Bolling, perhaps best known for his on-air racism, hosted a roundtable discussion on the Republican cable news network. When the subject turned to presidential “fear-mongering,” loyal Bushie Dana Perino said it was “ridiculous” to even bring up her former boss’ bogus claims about weapons of mass destruction and mushroom clouds.

Bolling had her back. (via Oliver Willis):

“Whether they did or didn’t, America was certainly safe between 2000 and 2008. I don’t remember any terrorist attacks on American soil during that period of time.”

No one on the panel interjected. The host then changed the subject.

…. many Americans connected the attacks of Sept. 11 to the phrase “Never Forget.” On Fox News, just two months before the 10th anniversary of 9/11, this has apparently been replaced with “Easily Forget.”

….I realize he’s a shameless partisan activist. I also realize Bolling will say literally anything to try to make Republicans look better, even when they’ve failed spectacularly. But this gem has to belong in the Hack Hall of Fame.

“lego? i’m thinking, this is more my speed…..”

(The expression of the girl on the right cracks me up!)

“You know what I’m especially excited about is, it’s nothing against the guys, but seeing six girls do an amazing project like this is really exciting. A lot of times in the past, engineering, math, science…girls were saying that’s not for me. You guys are showing that you guys are going to be at the cutting edge of this stuff. I’m proud of you.”
