FOX & Friends Hosts Offer Unique Perspective on Law, Order and Personal Accountability

Reported by Marie Therese - March 28, 2006

This morning at 6:07 AM EST FOX & Friends co-hosts Tiki Barber and E. D. Hill outdid themselves during a rant in which Hill lost it and dominated the segment by loudly bashing illegal immigrants and amnesty. I found the following exchange most illuminating.

E. D. HILL:  "We're a nation that is built on a system of law and order and I feel cheated because I obey the laws! You know, I don't throw trash out of the car!   I occasionally speed but, you know, I do follow the laws."

TIKI BARBER:  "That's only illegal if you get caught, E. D.  That's only illegal if you get caught speeding by the way."

HILL: "There ya' go. You follow the laws. So why do other people not have to follow the laws?


There it is, in all its sordid glory - the Republican philosophy of crime, punishment, retribution and restitution summed up in less than 15 seconds. Is it any surprise, then, that we are drowning in corruption scandals? The real tragedy here, of course, is that neither Barber nor Hill were aware of the utter hypocrisy of what they were saying.
