Tweet of the Day: Dude, that was a thousand years ago

Tweet of the Day: Dude, that was a thousand years ago

Some deathless themes just keep cropping up in our crazy-going world.  Who can forget National Security Council spokesdude Tommy Vietor on 1 May 2014, admonishing Brett Baier over the 9/11/12 attack in Benghazi:

Baier pressed Vietor on his role in changing the talking points by adding a line about the administration warning the day before the attacks of “social media reports calling for demonstrations,” in order to bolster the false idea that the attack was the spontaneous result of a riot against the video. Vietor affirmed this, but when Baier asked him if he’d  changed “attacks” to “demonstrations,” he got amnesia.

“Dude, this was like two years ago,” Vietor said. “We’re still talking about the most mundane process.”

“Dude,” Baier sarcastically shot back, “it is the thing that everybody is talking about.”

Another thing that keeps cropping up, because the president and his faithful media keep bringing it up, is the Crusades.  The POTUS-in-Chief said “Crusades” right on schedule this week, a mere two days after ISIS published its video of the hideous burning death of Jordanian pilot 1st Lt. Muadh al-Kasasbeh.

So much has happened since 7 January, when Al-Qaeda-linked terrorists attacked the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris, that many have already forgotten how the subject of the Crusades was raised almost immediately by the Amen corner of the Islamophobia industry in the Western left.

But that kind of just makes it more fitting that your Tweet of the Day is from, like, a month ago.  Dude.
