On Fox & Friends: Nancy Pelosi Is A Witch?

Reported by Priscilla - October 1, 2011 -

Whenever an icon of conservative womanhood (in particular Sarah Palin) is mocked by a liberal comedian (in particular, Bill Maher) howls of indignant, right wing rage are heard on Fox News. Cries of sexism are heard. Fox's Dr Keith Ablow provides some psychiatric insight into the woman hating. Fox Nation uses the word "pig" as a prefix to Bill Maher's name. But yet, Fox has no problem with the ongoing botox "jokes" about former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi which certain Fox guys have chuckled about. Earlier this week, Fox & Friends provided more "humor" about Pelosi when the music, played over footage of Nancy Pelosi, was the Eagle's "Witchy Woman." Funny, a GOP female candidate for Senate actually admitting to dabbling in witchcraft and (something you never heard on Fox) had a "date" on a Satanic altar. But as an icon of conservative womanhood, Christine O'Donnell wasn't mocked on Fox which holds conservative women in high esteem - liberal women not so much. Can you imagine the Fox News outrage if MSNBC played, over footage of Sarah Palin, Elton John's "The Bitch is Back."

If I were choosing music to play over Fox & Friends, it would probably be Cee Lo Green's "Fuck You." But that's just me. What tunes would you suggest?
