I thoroughly enjoyed watching O'Reilly pull the plug on a silly talking point, but I was disappointed that he didn't have the courage to follow through. He said, "the reason why I'm pleased to have you on the program tonight is that there is not a governor in the United States who has more experience than you do dealing with the oil companies." Just a little brown-nosing, why bother with a blatant lie? One need only look to Rick Perry, who has been Governor of Texas for 10 years. Between drilling on the gulf coast and the presence in Houston of every major oil company, Perry of course has more experience than Palin's half of one term.
You missed the best part of Palin’s appearance: her reference to the Dutch and their expertise that could be used in the gulf. Too good to be left out.
I figured I would leave the whole question of dikes alone. Another:
The Dutch weren't offering to help with the leak; they were offering to help with the clean-up.
Mudflats fisked the interview:
And by the way, there are 15 foreign-flagged vessels in the Gulf right now, and we’ve accepted equipment and assistance from many foreign countries INCLUDING ... wait for it ... Norway and The Netherlands. Are we really surprised?
Nah. She lies. FNC moves swiftly on without comment - and longs for another staged interview. But it's good to see this duplicitous bullshit machine slowly exposed by attaching itself to this font of whatever pops into her head at any moment.
