On the February 12th “The View,” the ABC show created by Barbara Walters, former Good Morning America staffer and WABC Radio talk show host Joy Behar suggested some sort of nefarious doings by Bush operatives: “This is incredible timing. Really. I mean, here we are trying to find the link between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda, in comes the tape that exact day. The timing is better than Hugh Hefner finding Viagra at 78. You know what I’m saying? Here’s a man all his life, did whatever he wanted, and now that he’s old he has Viagra. Same idea.”
Former NBC News reporter Star Jones chimed in: “Really wagging the dog this time.”
Then Queen Latifah, who was nominated on Tuesday for an Academy Award for “Best Supporting Actress” for her role in the movie Chicago, wondered: “Don’t you want to know what’s real and what’s not? I remember when I was a kid, you know, this whole Cold War thing. They had us scared of the Russians. ‘The Russians, the Russians, the Russians.’ So it’s almost like what’s real and what’s not?”
Like anyone rational would trust her to know.
So, because we won the “Cold War thing” there never was a threat, millions didn’t die because of communism and no one was enslaved by Soviet expansionism?
