WTF? MOMENT OF THE DAY: RUDY GOES OFF THE RAILS, SMASHES INTO 9/11 LIE

The man who for years and years used the phrase 9/11 as his trademarked and copyrighted political platform just... conveniently forgot all about it, thus proving once again how limited politicians' ability to tell the truth is. Yes, that is right, Rudy Guliani went out there and claimed this...
WASHINGTON – Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani set off a tempest about terrorism Friday with his claim that this nation "had no domestic attacks" under President George W. Bush. Giuliani somehow neglected to mention the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks as he was contrasting President Barack Obama's handling of terrorism with that of Bush in light of the failed Christmas Day attempt to blow up a Detroit-bound flight. The Sept. 11 attacks toppled New York's World Trade Center, killed nearly 3,000 people in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania and earned Giuliani accolades as "America's mayor." The Republican said of Obama on ABC's "Good Morning America" that "what he should be doing is following the right things that Bush did." While saying he believes Obama "turned the corner" on understanding the nature of terrorism when he publicly declared the U.S. at war, Giuliani added that Obama has plenty of room to improve on terrorism. "We had no domestic attacks under Bush," Giuliani said. "We've had one under Obama."
I wish I could say that Guiliani is just demented and on his way to a senio citizen home, where they will provide him with all the things that are necessary to keep him sedated for the rest of his life.

But considering this is now at least the second instance a former Bush government spokesperson/major Republican has come out to state that it was all fine when we were in power, remember, we kept you safe, except for that big fucking hole in the ground at the lower end of Manhattan, but that must have been the Chocolate Messiah's fault...

(and I am not defending the Chocolate Messiah at all, but is it just me, or have the Democrats become Republicans, and the Republicans have entered Jonestown and are waiting for the final Kool-Aid?)

... I cannot help but to be reminded of the Dolchsto├člegende that started in my country right at the end of World War 1, where conservatives – despite better knowledge – successfuly tried to con the population that the war could have been won, if it hadn't been for those pesky, weak-willed communist democrats inside our own country. Them's to blame! Something that incidentally helped the rise to power of this completely unknown crackpot, what was his name again? Oh, yes. Adolf. And who is waiting in the wings in America, 2012? That other crackpot, Sarah.  Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. The time is running out, gentlemen. And it's got nothing to do with the Mayan calendar.
