Fox News’ Dick Cheney Infomercial That Just Happens To Swipe At President Obama

In advance of Dick Cheney’s memoirs coming out, Fox News devoted an entire hour showcasing Cheney recently (8/19/11). Need I say there were rose-colored glasses for Cheney? And yet somehow host Bret Baier managed to work in some swipes at President Obama. The special was called “Dick Cheney Revealed” but it should have been called “Dick Cheney Touched Up.”

Fox & Friends and Stuart Varney Side With Big Auto Against Better MPG Regulations

Recently the Obama administration floated the possibility of passing new mileage standards for car-makers. The proposed goal of 56 of miles per gallon for cars would be phased in over time, so that the eventual target is reached by 2025. On Fox and Friends The Three Stooges on the Curvy Couch (with Dana Perino playing the part of Gretchen Carlson) hosted Stuart Varney, and all seemed to think that this was all a stunt to get Obama re-elected and just more Big Government telling business what to do. Watch:

Impeach President Glenn Beck Now!!!

I have long maintained that Glenn Beck, the Fox “News” Conspiracy-Theorist-in-Chief, has not matured beyond his High School Daze. Back then, no doubt, if someone asked him to “stop doing that,” Beck would probably have done it twice as hard and twice as often, in order to be even more irritating. He appears happiest when he is poking someone in the eye. His appropriation of Fairey’s design elements for his Faith, Hope and Charity posters is typical of the patented “Eff You” from The Beckinator—calculated to get under people’s skin. This week he took the ‘poke’ to a whole new level when he gave a Presidential Address, which he knew would irritate his detractors, while sitting in front of an electronic mock-up of the Oval Office. What Beck didn’t know, or didn’t care, was that he may have broken a Federal law, specifically Title 18, Part I, Chapter 33, Section 713 of the U.S. Code, which restricts the use of the official Presidential Seal.

Fox News “Democrat” Doug Schoen Pleased Eric Holder Has “Butched Up” And Morphed Into Dick Cheney

The Hannity show’s Great American Panel partook in one of a zillion discussions on Fox News about Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s gaffe in an ABC interview. Last night (12/22/10) the panel contained the usual two conservative guests (plus the conservative host) “balanced” by Fox News “Democrat” Doug Schoen. At least during the Clapper discussion, Schoen refrained from joining the pile on. Instead, he joined with substitute host Mark Steyn in praising Holder’s “morphing” into Dick Cheney.

Hannity Dismisses Patriot Act Concerns, Obsesses About People Seeing Him In A Speedo Via Google Earth

Sean Hannity has been in a tizzy lately over the news that the town of Riverhead, N.Y. has used Google Earth to find unpermitted swimming pools in their community. Hannity doesn’t just feel that it’s government intrusion onto private property, he seems most concerned that someone will see him and his “big fat stomach” laying around his fancy swimming pool. In the first place, Hannity’s complaint is wildly hypocritical given that he is gung ho for warrantless wiretapping and gaga for the Patriot Act. In fact, Hannity loves the Patriot Act so much, he wouldn’t even let his Democratic guest bring it up for comparison. But Earth to Hannity: You might want to consider redirecting your anger to Google instead of the government of Riverhead. Unlike the federal government which uses its own resources to eavesdrop on your phone calls, snoop into your library records, etc., Riverhead is merely using a free service available to everyone. In other words, we can all probably see your tum-tum in the lounge chair just as easily as they can.
