Rachel abandons her too: Early on last evening’s program, Rachel Maddow even mentioned Susan Rice—although she stuck to the script here too:
MADDOW (11/12/12): Senator Kerry had mostly been talked about as a potential replacement for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The [Washington] Post reporting tonight that that nomination for secretary of state is instead almost certain to go to United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice.Strange! Did Susan Rice really say “that the attack was thought to be linked to Islamist protests in Benghazi and around that part of the world rather than an organized terrorist attack?”
Republicans tried to make into a scandal Susan Rice’s Sunday news show comments after the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya, her comments that the attack was thought to be linked to Islamist protests in Benghazi and around that part of the world rather than an organized terrorist attack.
That’s a very murky presentation—from Our Own Rhodes Scholar! But no, that isn’t what Rice really said. That’s a version of the script which emerged with great fervor from Fox.
Timidly, Rachel tweaked Fox’s script. Good God, but this child is a coward!
What your lizard brain is saying: Your lizard brain is telling you that we just have to be wrong.
Rachel Maddow is on my side! That's what your lizard brain says.
