Megyn Kelly So Mean To Dick Cheney, UNFAIR
For the most part, we are not big fans of Fox's Megyn Kelly. There's just something about her head-tilted, unbelieving-skeptic pose that screams Fakey McFakerton to us, as if attitude = hard-hitting journalism. All the same, it's kind of fun to see that pissed-off sorority-girl-who-can't-believe-she-got-a-"C" face turned on kitten-devouring warmonkey Dick Cheney and his prop daughter Liz. Take this clip from Wednesday's The Kelly Files, where Megs opened the segment quoting a WaPo piece asking why anyone would listen to the one person in America "who has been more wrong and more shamelessly dishonest on the topic of Iraq."
And then the mood started getting a little unfriendly.
We rather enjoyed the moment when Kelly takes the money quote from yesterday's Liz-N-Dick "we're still here" op-ed and throws it back at Lord Vader:
In your op-ed, you write as follows: "Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many." But time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well in Iraq, sir.
And then Kelly launched into a list of terribly wrong Cheney quotes and predictions, asking, "what do you say to those who say you were so wrong about so much at the expense of so many?"
To which Cheney replied with this beautiful verbal slip: "No, I just fundamentally disagree, Reagan... uh, Megyn...(cough!)" And also, everybody knew that Saddam Hussein had WMD's, so no way was the Iraq War conducted on the basis of a lie, and it was a brilliant victory that Barack Obama has foolishly pissed away. And George Bush's 2008 status of forces agreement, which specified a 2011 withdrawal of U.S. forces, is not to blame, because Barack Obama is responsible for not renewing it. He just should have forced Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to renegotiate it, the big weakling, because why should Iraq have any say in an agreement like that?
Also, added Liz, eager to get a chance to speak, Obama is one dangerous dude, the biggest enemy America has:
"I think there is no question, I think that he is, uh, unique, in terms of a president who is sitting in the Oval Office, who has made very clear that his desire is to weaken the nation. And, whether you say it’s his intent or naivete, you can now look at the results of the policies of the last six years.”
Stop blaming the Bush-Cheney administration for Iraq, guys. Totally Obama's fault. Damn it, we need some more war.
