I wasn’t sure where this would fit in with any of the myriad political threads floating around – and I didn’t want to threadshit too hard, so this one stands on its own.
I don’t suppose a preamble addressing the absolute bullshit that the Fox “News” slogan is, but if the following is fair and balanced reporting, then I’m Edward R Murrow.
I flicked the TeeVee on this morning I was readying for work and what do I see flashed across the screen on this morning’s Fox and Friend’s Pundit Pit?
Will There Be Riots If Obama Loses?
One brave soul, a Democratic somethingoranother, piped up that it sounded a lot like racism and that he found the whole question offensive. The defense, from Stephen Baldwin of all people: “No, we just mean its such a fiery race, there might be some backlash.” So where was the **Will There Be Riots if McCain Loses **round-table? Do they really think the general viewing public is that stupid?
But then then next topic of discussion was the “blatant sexism” in talking about Sarah Palin’s clothes, while pointedly not talking about Joe Biden’s botox. I crap you negative. They hashed that bullshit around for five minutes and not one mealy mouthed fucker up there had the nuts to state the obvious – it’s not about her clothes, it’s about the 150 Large they spent on them.
You think the DNC ponied up the equivalent of what Joe the Plumber makes in three years so Biden’s forehead is nice and smooth? I don’t fucking think so.
Fortunately, Steve “Look At All The Goofy Faces I Make” Doocy started talking about his book and my gag reflex kicked in so I switched to SportsCenter.
Rant over … I know, I know … nothing really new. But ooooh they irritate me so much!
