Is Fox's Roger Ailes funny?

    The Democrats don't think so...

    And not surprisingly, here's Fox's response...
    "Fox News Vice President David Rhodes responded to the debate cancellation with a written statement saying MoveOn.org owns the Democratic Party."

    Classic attempt by Rhodes to gloss over the B.S. spoken by his boss, and instead shift blame onto the enemy.

    Fair and balanced indeed.
     
  3. Edwards is now raising money on this.
    Fuckabuncha Roger Ailes. He's a blight.

    Why are they so pissed at Ailes about this? Ted Kennedy did the same thing when he introduced Obama a while back and he wasn't joking.
     
  5. Oh, crap.
    Come on.

    I must admit, I don't care much for Fox News or Rush, but that parody song Rush plays where Ted Kennedy tries to say Obama's name done to the tune of "La Bamba" is kind of funny.

    Did Ted Kennedy really suggest, even half-heartedly, that Barack Obama was actually Osama bin Laden? If so, please provide a link.

    He once (presumably) mistakenly referred to Barack Obama as Osama ... there are a ton of shots of it on You Tube.

    Look up Kennedy trying to pronounce Sammy Sosa and you'll understand the difference between a slip of the tongue and the pushing of a pernicious slander.
     
  10. And, of course, he and Roger Ailes share so much in common politically that their motivations must have been the same.
    If the D's boycott Fox in all its many guises, I'm down with that.

    I hadn't watched John Gibson in a while, so it was a treat to hear (well, watch on closed captioning at the gym) his final word today. You see, the surge is reportedly going rather well, yet not many are reporting it. It would be a shame if American domestic politics had gone SO far that some people are hoping the surge fails!

    What a fucking douche. He gets a rare morsel of news that somewhat slightly bolsters his argument, and instantly turns it into an opportunity to impugn the patriotism of millions of Americans. All the while, he's ignoring history. What did the Iraqi insurgency do at the beginning of the war? Ran and hid from the shock and awe, then came out of the woodwork when "major combat operations" ended. Why wouldn't Sadr and the Mahdi Army do the same now? Let the Americans surge, create a (false) sense of security, and then fill the void with all guns blaring when we leave. Gibson's quite probably falling into the same trap that most of the war's supporters did 46-47 months ago, yet he's so stupid that he can't even comprehend the fallibility of his thinking. He'd much rather gloat over an extremely tiny victory in a war that's likely already lost -- and virtually accuse those who disagree with him of treason. Fuck him. And fuck Ailes.
