Fox News The Obama Manners Police On Afghanistan Speech

It’s time for Fox News to add “Manners Police” to their badges that already appoint them Religion and Race Police. You may recall that after the capture of Osama Bin Laden, Fox Newsies whined that President Obama didn’t give enough credit to George W. Bush. Now, in the wake of Obama’s speech on Afghanistan last night (6/22/11), Fox is whining that Obama didn’t give enough credit to General David Petraeus. I guess making him head of the CIA wasn’t enough recognition. Apparently, President Obama didn’t get the memo that he needs to check with Fox before going to church, before inviting someone to the White House and now before giving a speech to make sure it passes muster.

Ann Coulter Was For The War In Afghanistan Before She Wondered Why We’re There

Two-Time voter-fraud suspect Ann Coulter was back on Hannity last night (4/18/11) (once again no mention of her very suspicious voting history) and in between her trademark invective against Democrats and liberals, asked rhetorically, "What are we doing in Afghanistan?" Anyone familiar with Coulter may have wanted to turn to her own past words in strong support of the war in response. Sean Hannity predictably went all amnesiac and acted as though she had always opposed the war.
