Fox “News” is heavily invested in the Phony War on Hilary Rosen, despite apologies all ‘round. Why? Because Fox has found this to be a hugely divisive topic, and all divisive topics works in its favor. That’s why it’s a winner for the so-called Fair and Balanced network, which is also why it was still an active meme this morning as the real GOP War on Women never was. Since the Rosen-Romney hullabaloo occurred after the last episode of The Weekly Stine™—that Monday morning Fox and Friends segment where ex-carny Brad Stine blames everything wrong with ‘Merka on Liberals—it was an obvious topic to outsource to Stine. What was less obvious was for Stine to outsource his segment to Desiree Stine, identified helpfully by the chyron as “Wife of Brad Stine,” as if that is the “be all and end all” of her existence. It may well be.
Not surprisingly, Desiree-wife-of-Brad-Stine thought Hilary Rosen’s remarks were “an attack on traditional family” and “Cub Scout moms and Girl Scout moms.” Desiree-wife-of-Brad-Stine may have been looking for a traditional marriage after her 5-year relationship with “Wild” Mick Brown, drummer of ‘80s Heavy Metal Hair Band Dokken. In a 2004 New Yorker article Desiree-wife-of-Brad-Stine told Adam Green that’s what prepared her to be married to a “road dog and moody artist like Brad.”
Meanwhile, as Desiree-wife-of-Brad-Stine, rambled off her opinions—or were they her husband’s opinions? It’s so hard to tell with these traditional marriages—Brad mugged at the camera with his rubbery face for almost 4 excruciating minutes. However, at the very end of the segment Brad Stine made sure he put his wife in her place: “She did my job today, now I have to go home and vacuum. So, I hope you’re happy, Steve.” A Conservative Christian Comedian’s work is never done, as this tweet makes clear:

Have fun on the couch, Brad. Tell me when she lets you off of it.
